CA - Lynn Schockner, 50, stabbed to death, Long Beach, 8 Nov 2004
This is horrible! I cannot imagine the helplessness she must have felt, knowing the police were so close!
A woman was stabbed to death as officers waited for her to unlock a gate so they could search her yard for an intruder, police said.
The officers had asked Lynn Schockner, 50, to unlock the gate to her backyard Monday so they could investigate a neighbor's report of a possible intruder. She agreed and went inside the house to go unlock the gate.

From December 2007:
The Bixby Knolls millionaire who ordered his wife's murder three years ago was called insatiably greedy and "a disgusting human being" on Thursday before being sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Long Beach Superior Court Judge Gary Ferrari delivered the sentence - and the biting remarks - to a frail-looking but defiant Manfred Schockner, convicted in September of planning the 2004 murder-for-hire of his estranged wife, Lynn, 50. Evidence during the trial showed that the defendant had feared losing half of his $7-million fortune in the couple's pending divorce.
Manfred Schockner, the victim’s estranged husband, was sentenced to life in prison without parole for masterminding a plot and enlisting help from Frankie Jaramillo, an acquaintance from a local gym. He paid $50,000 to Jaramillo, who then hired Nicholas Harvey, a steroid-addicted bodybuilder from Port Hueneme, to do the job for $5,000.
Harvey was caught, moments after the murder, fleeing the Schockners’ yard. But it took wiretaps, phone records, bank statements, undercover surveillance videos and the use of police decoys to make a definitive connection between Schockner and the killer.
Jaramillo and Harvey were both convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.
