HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A jury has heard closing arguments and has begun deliberations in the trial of a Connecticut woman charged with trying to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband.

Jurors in Hartford Superior Court listened to final arguments by a prosecutor and defense lawyer Wednesday in the case of 39-year-old Tiffany Stevens.

Stevens is charged with attempted murder. She denies allegations she paid $5,000 to a maintenance man to kill her ex-husband, Eric Stevens, in 2012 during a bitter child custody court case. Simsbury police say the would-be hit-man took the money but never carried out the plot.

Police said Eric Stevens told them that whoever won custody of his daughter would control a $50 million trust fund, but Tiffany Stevens’ father testified there is no such fund.
