Angry Mother in Law Motive

Everybody keeps forgetting that Steele is an accountant first. Cyndi has at least one sister who would likely be first in line for her mother's life insurance. Money is not likely to be the motive here. Steele was supposedly going to give the entire proceeds of his wife's life insurance policy to the hitman. If his wife were about to divorce him, she could have been dealt with locally without making the plot more complex.
