A Texas woman who's been on the run since 2009 has been added to the state's top 10 most wanted list.

According to a report from our news partners at KWTX, Margaret Lorrain Smith, 62, was recently added to Texas' top 10 after fleeing to avoid her sentencing.

Smith was charged with murder after evidence showed that she hired someone to kill her husband, George Smith. Margaret persuaded her husband to join her at Surfside Beach “late at night and left him sitting in the sand as the man she hired beat George to death with a metal object,” the DPS said.

In September 2007, Margaret Smith and her co-defendant, Dylan Laughrey were indicted for capital murder. Laughrey was sentenced in 2008 to life without parole, and Margaret didn't wait around to see what the judge had in store for her. Margaret was out on bond and fled on Aug. 11, 2009.

Margaret Smith is described as 5-foot-6, approximately 185 pounds, often dyes her naturally dark curly hair or wears wigs, and has a mole on the bottom of her right eyelid.

It's been almost 12 years that Smith has been on the run, and officials are eager to bring her to justice.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
