HAGERSTOWN, Md. | A Hagerstown man has been charged with offering a fellow Washington County jail inmate money to murder his estranged wife.

Forty-four-year-old James Keiser Jr. was ordered held without bail Friday on charges of solicitation to commit both first-degree murder and first-degree assault.

Court records available online did not identify a defense attorney who could comment on the case.

Sheriff’s Detective Greg Alton says Keiser made the offer Dec. 16 while he was incarcerated for allegedly assaulting his wife and violating a protective order.
