Opel was living with Jerry Duane Heiman, aged 64 and his 89-year-old mother, whom she cared for. In order to steal $40,000, she paid five teenagers, including her own 13-year-old daughter, to murder Heiman. Her other children, aged 7 and 11, were instructed by her to help mop up his blood. Kyle Boston, aged 14, received $220, whilst his 13-year-old cousin was paid roughly $100, for the killing. 17-year-old Jeffrey Grote was given a car.

Opel denied that she wanted him dead, despite regularly telling friends "I wish he was dead". She was found guilty and was narrowly spared the death penalty, as the jury could not reach a unanimous decision. Following her conviction she was banned from any contact with her children, or being in the same prison as them. Her daughter Heather, received a 22-year prison sentence, with no possibility of parole, at the age of 14.
