will still be rich. A bizarre murder for hire case. On three separate occasions, this woman hired someone to kill her lover's wife. Reporter: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Yvonne storm is furious. The woman who hired a hitman to kill her three times reached a plea. She said this corrupt plea deal would be more understandable if she had not livid her adult life lying, cheat, sale itealing and trying to kill anyone that crossed her. She is michelle geyser. She says she did it because yvonne's husband jeffrey, a prominent houston attorney, wanted her dead. Yvonne never believed that, as she told chris cuomo. The affair, okay, I'll give you that one. But to plot my murder? Preposterous. I've known this man for 30 years. I know who I'm lying next to. Reporter: She stood by her man when almost no one else did. Prosecutors charged her husband with the three murder plots. Geyser was supposed to be the trial against jeffrey next week. A few days ago, this twisted tale took a u turn. The charges were dropped against the husband. Yvonne is happy about that. Not about geyser's sentence. She hoped the judge would send the mistress away for 40 years. I beg you for the sake of my children and my sense of security to reject this 20-year deal. I have suffered for over two years due to this animal and remain scarred for life. Prosecutors say geyser has cooperated and the plea deal is fair. Under it, the mistress who admits to trying to have her lover's wife killed three times could free in just eight years.
