Homicide

Man who was 16 when lover persuaded him to kill her husband is moved to low-security prison

A New Hampshire man who was 16 when his lover persuaded him and his friends to kill her husband has been moved to a minimum-security prison.

William "Billy" Flynn was moved this past week as part of a work-release program. At 15, he began a torrid affair with Pamela Smart, his teacher for a self-esteem course at his high school.

He testified that Smart helped plan her husband's killing to make it look like a burglary. Flynn was convicted of killing Gregg Smart in May 1990, a week before the couple's wedding anniversary.

Pamela Smart was also convicted and is serving a life sentence. Flynn was sentenced to 28 years in prison.

The case was tabloid fodder and led to books and movies, including "To Die For," starring Nicole Kidman.
