Arrest report details estranged wife’s suspected role in highway murder plot
On Friday, Pearson become the third person arrested in a suspected highway murder plot, joining their adopted son Michael Bessey, and her brother, Richard Pearson, according to the report.

There were also accusations that Robert Bessey had a history of abusing Michael Bessey and Amy Pearson. Michael Bessey told police that his father had mentally and physically abused them, while one witness told police Robert Bessey had pulled a gun on Pearson in the past.
Meanwhile, Robert Bessey said his wife and Michael Bessey also shared an “unnatural relationship,” and cited a letter Michael Bessey had written to Pearson from the detention center that included the line “I miss touching you.” While Michael Bessey’s former boss, a security guard at Treasure Island’s country-western nightclub, said he had witnessed Pearson and Michael Bessey being “over affectionate,” and touching each other intimately.

The couple had been married for 18 years and had three kids together. They each had two children from prior relationships and Bessey adopted Amy Bessey's biological son Michael two years after they were married.
It seems this is HER son who the ex husband adopted after they married.WOW!I Love You MOM 6/16/32 - 5/30/09

Woman Accused in Murder Conspiracy Wished Her Husband Was Dead
Bessey took the stand Monday afternoon and told jurors that she never asked anyone to kill her husband, but did say out loud that she wished he was dead.
"I was fed up. I just wanted it to be done. I just said it. I wish he was dead," Bessey testified.
Robert Bessey was shot in the neck shortly before his divorce to Amy was to be finalized and before he was able to change the beneficiary of the $250,000 life insurance policy.
Amy Bessey described her ex-husband as a violent man. She also suggested if she had wanted to kill him, she could have.
"He took his fist to my face. He took his knee to my rib," Amy Bessey said, describing one of the alleged instances she was abused. "I grabbed my purse and walked out the door."
"Was there a firearm in that purse?" defense attorney Augustus Claus asked.
"Yes," Bessey replied.
