A possible plea deal was discussed Wednesday between the State Attorney's Office and Dalia Dippolito's attorney, but it did not end in a deal.

"She is a mom. She is focused on her family, she wants to move forward with her life and for those reasons we tried to negotiate with the state, " Dippolito's attorney, Greg Rosenfeld told NewsChannel 5.

Dippolito is charged with trying to hire a hit man to kill her then husband. She was convicted once but verdict was thrown out. A second trial ended in a mistrial. 

Both sides are due back in court on Friday for a status check. 

Dippolito's lawyers are asking she be allowed off house arrest whole awaiting the third trial.
