A second person has been charged in the murder of a Killeen ISD bus driver in 2014. 

Killeen police charged Jo Ann Wilbert with capital murder for her involvement in the murder of Christine Watkins on Oct. 20, 2014. 

Killeen police said it was a murder-for-hire. 

Watkins was found in the driveway of a home in the 1400 block of Pine Drive on Oct. 20, 2014. Watkins had been shot and was pronounced dead. 

In 2015, Andrew Hardesty, 32, was charged with the murder. 

Killeen Police worked alongside Brevard County Sheriff's Detectives and traveled to Merritt Island, Florida to take Wilbert into custody.

At the time of the murder, Wilbert lived in Killeen. 

Wilbert was transported to the Bell County Jail on August 9. She is currently held on a $1 Million bond for a capital murder charge.
