  A man who was 16 when his adult lover recruited him and his friends to kill her husband in New Hampshire is scheduled for a parole hearing in March.

William ``Billy'' Flynn was transferred last year to a facility in Warren, Maine, as part of a work-release program.

Flynn testified against Pamela Smart, saying she wanted her husband dead so she wouldn't lose her condo, furniture and dog in a divorce.

Flynn pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Gregg Smart in May 1990 and was sentenced to 28 years to life in prison.

The 41-year-old Flynn is scheduled for a hearing March 12.

Pamela Smart, serving a life sentence without parole, doesn't deny the affair, but maintains she had nothing to do with the murder.
