LORADO, Ark. (AP) - Greene County Sheriff David Carter says the estranged husband of a grocery store manager offered three people money to help kill his wife.

Carter says 58-year-old Charles Quintana indicated he was getting money and would pay for the killing of 45-year-old Stacy Quintana. Carter says investigators determined Charles Quintana was not about to receive money.

Stacy Quintana was shot to death Dec. 23 at Lorado Grocery about 12 miles north of Jonesboro.

Charles Quintana allegedly gave the gun used in the shooting to 31-year-old Stacy Keplinger, who is suspected of killing Stacy Quintana.

Charles Quintana, Keplinger and Darrell Swan - who allegedly drove Keplinger to the store - face preliminary charges that include capital murder and kidnapping. Keplinger’s roommate is charged with hindering apprehension.

The four are due in court Jan. 26.
