EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A federal judge has ruled that an Oregon woman accused of hiring a felon to kill her ex-husband in Utah is too dangerous to be released from jail while awaiting trial in the case.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1h0XrKV ) the attorney for 57-year-old Pamela Jean Gygi asked the judge Monday to place the woman on house arrest. But the judge said the allegations against Gygi were enough to keep her detained, because she poses a potential danger to her ex-husband.

The woman’s ex-husband had reported to police in June that he had been visited by a man who said he had been hired by Gygi to kill him. The alleged hit man then cooperated with police during their investigation.

Gygi was arrested July 10. She remains in the Lane County Jail.
