Wife attempts to hire hitman to kill husband, charged with murder

According to the Associated Press, a woman in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and a related conspiracy charge after trying to hire a hitman to go after her husband.

Her lover was the one who actually attempted the hiring, but the hitman was an undercover police officer, as the AP reports, and arrested him. This arrest led to the wife, after police discovered the affair and connected the dots.

The wife is alleged to have given her lover some money and helped him plan the hit, though it’s not clear how it all would go down, had the hitman actually been a hitman. But if the state is able to prove its case, it’s easy to assume that this Maryland woman wanted out of her marriage in a bad way.

In Maryland, first-degree murder can be defined as murder done with deliberate intention, or that which is “premeditated,” such as an attempt to hire a hitman.
