I hope the family can find some peace and frankly I hope they get that money. Did she ever take possession of the money or was it not funded yet due to the suspicious circumstances?

I'm a little confused. How can she be charged with both of these offenses for the same crime? IANAL, but it would seem that either would be exclusive and could not be congruent.

Who took the young man's life?

The money is 'detained' by order of the circuit Court of Allegany County.

With the new developments, I doubt she'll see a penny of it.

Sequential acts. First assisted, then completed the job. He had injuries from both a fall and his throat being cut. Movies nonwithstanding, it is very hard to cut your throat twice.

The state can also file different levels of charges for the same crime. The jury can then decide whether the elements of the crime fit a particular level. Given the financial transaction and the fact that there was a lead-up to the actual death, I am suprised that the charge is not first degree.
