INDIANA, US: An Indiana woman has been sentenced to 115 years in prison for killing her ex-boyfriend by poisoning his oatmeal and strangling him to death with the help of her daughter and her then-boyfriend over a custody battle. 

Heidi Marie Littlefield was found guilty of murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder following a seven-day trial in August. The 42-year-old had been plotting her ex-boyfriend Frances Kelley's murder for a long time before poisoning his oatmeal with fentanyl and strangling him and bashing his head on the floor with the assistance of her daughter Logan Marie Runyon and her then-boyfriend Robert James Walker over a custody dispute for their two-year-old daughter.

Littlefield's partner in crime - Logan Marie Runyon is serving a 26-year prison sentence for the murder conspiracy along with her ex-boyfriend who was sentenced to 10 years. Both of them have testified the details about their doing and signed a plea deal. Walker confessed that Littlefield gave him $2,500 to hire a hitman previously to kill Kelley. However, he and his girlfriend spent it all on drugs, clothes, and hotels.

Investigators learned that this was not the first time Littlefield attempted to poison her ex, but had tried it thrice before. She had snuck into his house in 2020 and laced his soup with fentanyl before deciding on his oatmeal. A text conversation between the murderer and the victim was found where Kelley asks Littlefield if she had poisoned his oatmeal.

The pair had previously been talking about the custody hearing for their baby when Kelley texted, "Did you do something to the oatmeal that was in my fridge?" To which Littlefield responded as if she was unaware of what he was talking about. Kelley, however, was certain that the funny taste of the oatmeal was Littlefield's doing. "You were in my fridge last night and it tasted funny after a couple bites and now I am light headed," he texted later.

On January 15, 2021, Littlefield asked her daughter to poison Kelley's oatmeal. After finding him gasping for air on the floor the next day, Littlefield jogged upstairs and brought his 'favorite tie' to strangle the man. His body was found three days later by Carmel Police Department on January 18, 2021. Prosecutors said Kelley died due to asphyxiation and the fentanyl intoxication played a huge role in it.

Littlefield had planned to blame her daughter for the murder previously before Walker came clean during police interviews.
