Prosecutors say Brown, along with Turpin’s wife, Elizabeth Turpin, and Keith Bouchard, plotted to kill Michael Turpin for $60,000 in life insurance money.

The board already ordered Elizabeth Turpin and Bouchard to serve out their life sentences.

The Department of Corrections says, barring court action, Brown will now remain in prison and be unable to come before the board again.
