Guam - Four people charged for the murder of U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant Nathan Paet made their initial appearance in a Las Vegas courtroom today. CBS affiliate 8NewsNow reports that Michelle Paet, Nathan's wife, appeared via videoconference along with Michael Rudolph Rodriguez, Corry A. Hawkins and Jessica Austin.

All are charged with murder and conspiracy as it's alleged that they plotted Nathan's murder for $650,000 in insurance money that Michelle stood to gain upon her husband's death.  She remains on suicide watch.

During today's hearing the District Attorney's Office in Nevada says it may seek the death penalty in this case. A preliminary hearing for the suspects has been scheduled for December 23.
