A former model has been sentenced to seven years in an Ohio prison for trying to hire someone to murder her husband's ex-wife, PEOPLE confirms.

Tara Lambert appeared in court on Wednesday for her sentencing wearing red prison scrubs and state-issued rubber shoes, a Circleville, Ohio, court official tells PEOPLE.

Last month, a jury found Lambert guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder. In addition to her sentence, Lambert must also pay a $10,000 fine, a judge ruled.

Lambert Suggested Using a Woodchipper to Dispose of Remains

The intended victim is the mother of Lambert's husband's two children.

Lambert met with an undercover cop posing as a hired killer and provided the cop with a down payment and a picture of her stepchildren's mother.

During her conversations with the undercover officer, she suggested using a wood chipper to dispose of her husband's ex's remains, records show.

Court officials say Lambert's attorney argued at trial that his client was baited by the officer into arranging the hit.
