NEWMARKET, Ont. -- Jennifer Pan is weaving a story to save her life. But this time, she insists everything she says is true.

The meek 28-year-old with the mousy black hair and schoolmarm glasses stands charged with a shocking crime: arranging the murder of her own mother and the failed attempt on her father during what appeared to be a violent home invasion four years ago.

For months, the Crown evidence has painted the admitted liar as the lovesick mastermind behind the scheme to have her dragon parents killed in a staged break-in so that she and her former boyfriend Daniel Wong could finally be together while enjoying her inheritance.

Now it was Pan's turn to take the stand to convince a jury that her parents were not supposed to be the targets of the hired hitmen who let themselves into her family's home that night of Nov. 8, 2010.

She was.
