She claimed she wanted the life insurance as well as her two land plots worth about 10 million baht.
She said she needed the money to bail out her husband, who was detained on drug charges.
She paid Bt200,000 to Mr Dao, who was a friend of her husband, and Mr Prachoen, to kill her mother.
On the night of the attack, the pair waited in a car before Mr Prachoen fired shots at the victim.

Mrs Uamduan told investigators that before the attack, she thought her daughter might have tried to poison her.

She said she found a drink in her refrigerator had an unusual smell. When she threw it away, she noticed the ants that came to eat it died.
The woman and her daughter also quarreled frequently, said Pol Col Alongkot.
Pol Maj Gen Daoloy said the investigators were not convinced by Ms Kanchana’s confessions. The investigation would be expanded as the two male suspects had criminal records.
The three suspects were later taken for a crime re-enactment.
Ms Kanchana’s husband, Kittipong Plappla, 30, was arrested after police found 58 yaba pillsand some crystal meth on him in April. Mr Kittipong was being detained at Min Buri prison.
