Woman Sentenced in Murder for Hire Plot Involving Noblesville Attorney

Police say the woman tried to kill a Noblesville attorney.

INDIANAPOLIS -- A woman was sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison Friday for her role in a plot to murder a Noblesville attorney. 

Renee S. Perillo, 54, of Glendale, California, pleaded guilty in May 2017 to conspiracy to commit kidnapping and murder for hire. 

Sheriff's deputies were called to the home of attorney Rebecca Eimerman in Noblesville on May 25, 2015.  According to court documents, deputies found Renee Perillo and her son, Richard, lying in the back seat of the Eimerman's vehicle along with a syringe of a paralytic and a firearm.

Prosecutors said Eimerman was working to get a divorce settlement out of a man who was Perillo's boyfriend.

She also sent an envelope to an undercover FBI agent posing as a hitman in September 2015.  In her letter, Perillo suggested to the hitman that Eimerman be killed at an ATM machine in order to make it look like a robbery.

Perillo was sentenced to 27 years behind bars and must also serve five years of supervised release following her sentence, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Bradley Shepard.
