A woman who organised her ex-husband’s murder with her new lover has been jailed for 26 years.
Asta Juskauskiene, 35, was married to Giedruis Juskauskas, 42, but started an affair with Mantas Kvedaras, 25, after he was released from prison in Lithuania, Kingston Crown Court heard.
Kvedaras traveled to the UK to be with her — but her husband did not want a divorce, and they continued having a sexual relationship, according to testimony reported by Metro UK.
