TANGIPAHOA, La. (AP) - A woman accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband has been arrested as she tried to climb out the rear window of a mobile home in the village of Tangipahoa, authorities said Wednesday.

Trina Annette Tyler, 39, was booked Tuesday on two counts of soliciting for murder, according to a news release from the state Attorney General’s Office and the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The statement did not identify the second allegedly intended victim.

It was not clear whether Tyler had an attorney who could comment.

Sheriff Daniel Edwards asked the state fugitive apprehension unit for help locating and arresting Tyler, the officials said.

Tyler is also wanted for a 2012 parole violation in Texas, where she was convicted of possessing cocaine and laundering money, Attorney General’s spokeswoman Laura Gerdes Colligan said. She said Tyler ultimately will be extradited to Texas.

Tyler also goes by the aliases Trina Marshall and Trina Binford, according to the statement.
