FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WTVD) — A North Carolina woman already accused of killing her mother with an ax in South Florida has been charged with plotting to kill her husband.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office reports that 41-year-old Martha Walker was charged Thursday with conspiracy to commit murder.
According to multiple media outlets, Walker is from Fayetteville. It is not clear if that’s where her husband lives.
An inmate told jail officials that Walker approached her last month and asked if she knew anyone who could kill her husband in North Carolina. Walker reportedly wanted to collect death benefits from his insurance.
She wanted her husband “killed in an automobile accident” and wanted him to be left “unrecognizable.”
Authorities set up a sting, where Walker reportedly agreed to pay a hit man $1,500 to kill her husband.
