The mother and son charged in a Plainfield murder-for-hire plot are slated to appear again in court Monday afternoon. At the hearing, more details of their alleged plot will likely become public. 

Pauline Chase, 83, and Maurice Temple , 63, were arrested last month and charged with plotting to pay for the murder of Temple's ex-wife. Both are being held on $1 million bail. 

Mark Horne, the man who police say Temple and Chase planned to pay for the murder, is not being charged. Sullivan County Attorney  Marc Hathaway said Horne is cooperating with investigators.
