18-year-old April Rhoten and her boyfriend, James Neal Perkins, both of Tyler, have been indicted today on charges of conspiracy to commit murder. They were indicted by a Smith County Grand Jury.

The father, Dennis Rhoten, was not harmed in the plot, because Tyler Police learned of the plot and arrested April Rhoten and Perkins.

Rhoten was arrested at Robert E. Lee High School, and the boyfriend was arrested at Goodwill Industries, where he worked.

Perkins was also suspected of making threats against Chapel Hill High School, where he was a student, police said.
