WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin woman is accused of plotting to kill her fiance.

Thirty-three-year-old Jessica Strom of Merrill appeared in court Monday. She’s charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree intentional homicide.

According to court records, Strom allegedly tried to arrange the murder last week through a friend she had known while taking criminal justice classes at Northcentral Technical College. That person contacted police, who set up a sting operation in which Strom allegedly laid out plans to kill her “on again/off again boyfriend,” court documents say.

WAOW-TV reports Strom allegedly offered her former classmate $1,000 and sex in exchange for the murder.

Strom remains behind bars on a $250,000 cash bond. WSAW-TV reports she’s due back in court March 12. Online court records do not list a defense attorney.
