Guam wife accused of murder for hire plot

Posted: Updated:

HAGATNA, Guam (AP) - A Guam woman is charged with trying to hire someone to poison her husband.

Myrna Castro Evans was charged Thursday with solicitation to commit aggravated murder.

The Pacific Daily News (http://ow.ly/uyZx6) reports that court documents say Evans offered one of her employees land, cash and a sport utility vehicle in exchange for poisoning her husband.

The documents say that the man agreed but told the husband about the plan. The husband told him to keep pretending to carry out the plan.

When Evans met with the man on March 11, he secretly recorded their conversation. The documents say that when police later confronted her, she asked, "Is my husband OK?"

She's being held on $250,000 bail. Defense attorney Phillip Torres declined to comment on the allegations but says he'll be filing a bail reduction motion.
