NEW YORK (AP) — Police in New York City say they’ve arrested a woman after she offered a $US60,000 stamp collection to pay an undercover officer to kill her husband.
Police say Elena Adams was arrested Thursday and charged with conspiracy and criminal solicitation. They say the 57-year-old met with an undercover officer inside a car in the Sheepshead Bay neighbourhood of Brooklyn to discuss the murder-for-hire plot.
Police say Adams told the officer her husband should be struck by a hit-and-run driver on Sunday as he crossed a street after lunch.
After Adams discussed the plot, police say she gave the investigator a picture of her husband, the stamp collection and jewelry.
Adams was arrested at the scene. She was in custody Thursday and unavailable for comment. Attorney information was not immediately available.
