Breach of Contract?

A woman was convicted today of murdering her husband. She hired two hitmen to shoot him. As she drove her husband to the agreed-upon location, the gunmen opened fired on the car. They succeeded in killing the husband, but they also shot her, paralyzing her from the waist down. I would guess the shooting her part was not part of the deal.

I'd say she should get her money back, but I don't think she'd get much help from the courts on that. They'd probably say that contract is void and unenforceable as a matter of public policy. So she's just out that money. And permanently disabled. And spending the rest of her life in prison. Do you think life with her husband is looking a little less intolerable right about now?
