The Bellaire woman at the center of a complex murder-­for-hire plot said Tuesday her life has become a  “nightmare” in which she and her two children have become prisoners in their own  home.

Yvonne Stern told jurors her house now has bulletproof glass, surveillance cameras, iron gates and  floodlights, yet she and her children still do not feel safe.

“It’s a nightmare,” she  said. “I’m always afraid, especially when the doorbell rings.”

Stern testified against Nhut  Nguyen, the first suspect to go to trial in connection with a web of alleged  hitmen, middlemen and three botched shootings targeting the woman.

Nguyen, 38, was convicted Tuesday of aggravated assault in a two-day trial. Jurors will continue today deliberating his punishment, which could range from five years in prison to life, in state District Judge Denise Bradley’s court.

In court, Yvonne Stern spoke  about the terror and horror she still feels after being targeted by gunmen.

“I don’t feel safe in my own  home,” she said.

Others  awaiting trial

Several other people, including Stern’s husband, Jeffrey Stern, and his former mistress, Michelle Gaiser, are awaiting trial on charges they were involved in three attempts on  Stern’s life.

Yvonne Stern briefly filed  for divorce after being shot in May last year, but the couple reconciled. In court Tuesday, she declined to answer questions about her husband or their  marriage.

“That has nothing to do with what’s going on here,” she said. “I’m not going to answer that.”

Nguyen’s attorney, Sam  Maida, argued that other people, including Gaiser and Jeffrey Stern, were more  responsible than his client for the shooting.

The Vietnamese immigrant  fell in with a “bad group,” Maida said. He tried to scare Yvonne Stern to earn a portion of the $20,000 he was offered to kill her. Maida asked jurors to sentence Nguyen to 15 years in prison.

In a videotaped statement,  Nguyen said he cased Stern’s home before ringing the doorbell on April 15, 2010.  He said he fired once through the door as the woman and her son approached.

Before the April attempt, the Stern home had been shot during an apparent drive-by.

HPD  officers moved in

A month after Nguyen’s attempt, Yvonne Stern was shot in the abdomen while in the garage of a mid-rise  apartment building the family temporarily lived in while security measures were  installed at their home. She spent eight days in the hospital.

Until she was shot, police did not know who in the family was the target.

“I’m a mom, a grandma, a carpooler, a volunteer,” the mother of three said. “Who would want me dead?”

She said the family’s  security measures included hiring Houston police officers to live in the house  round-the-clock during the investigation. She said her home now has iron gates  and extensive security.

“We’ve basically turned my house into Fort Knox,” Stern said. “I’d like to move, but that’s just not  possible right now.”

She said she also put a deposit down on a large sport utility vehicle that was being armored for her  protection.

Admitted  1995 murder

During the punishment phase,  prosecutors raised the stakes for Nguyen from a 20-year cap to a maximum of life  behind bars by introducing evidence of a previous conviction.

Jurors heard from a Boston  FBI agent who said Nguyen pleaded guilty to 1995 murder and racketeering charges  in exchange for a 12-year prison sentence.

In that case, Nguyen admitted to shooting a man through the bathroom door of a Boston Chinatown gambling house. The victim was hit nine times and died.

“He uses a gun to solve his  problems,” prosecutor Kari Allen said. “He’s a hired killer.”
