During the preliminary hearing, Matheson testified against the alleged conspirators. Matheson told the court she "never met Jessica" the victim in this case. Matheson also said on more than one occasion she was told to 'keep her mouth shut'. 

Matheson described how Brown orchestrated the murder, hiring Glover to shoot and kill his estranged wife. Matheson testified brown paid $125 up front and then she paid Glover $125 after the murder.

The defense questioned Matheson's apparent calm testimony to which she replied "I don't know that anyone in this position could be calm".

Although the defense tried to build the case against Matheson, she told the court her testimony was truthful. Prosecutors offered Matheson a plea deal for her testimony. She could get a life sentence, but only have to serve 15 years.
