WOOD COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A woman was arrested Wednesday in an alleged murder-for-hire plot involving her husband, according to information from the Parkersburg Police Department.
Amy Yvonne Mayhugh, 40, of Vienna, W.Va., is charged with solicitation to commit murder. She was arrested at her home.
Police say Mayhugh wanted to have her husband killed to collect insurance money. She allegedly provided a Rolex watch to a "cooperating individual" as partial payment for her husband's death. Police say they have recorded conversations and other evidence in the case against Mayhugh.
She was expected to be arraigned late Wednesday night on the charge.
