Attorneys for the woman accused in the Richmond Hill neighborhood explosion want prosecutors to turn over evidence they have against her ex-boyfriend in a murder-for-hire case.

Monserrate Shirley's legal team wants to know what, if anything, he said about Shirley while trying to hire a hit man to kill a witness.

Shirley, her then-boyfriend Mark Leonard and his brother are accused of blowing up her home to collect insurance money. Two people died in the blast.

Shirley's attorneys also say they expect to be ready for trial whenever the judge sets it.
