LE CENTER, Minn. (AP) - A mother and daughter from southern Minnesota are accused of conspiring to kill the daughter’s ex-husband.

Fifty-nine-year-old Linda Bloom of Cleveland and her 41-year-old daughter, Blanche Wilson of Le Sueur, were charged Friday with conspiracy to commit murder.

The Free Press of Mankato (https://bit.ly/28Wg5Ex ) reports the two allegedly plotted to kill Wilson’s ex-husband after Wilson lost custody of her children to him.

According to the complaint, an informant tipped off authorities and set up a meeting between Wilson, Bloom and a sheriff’s investigator who posed as a hit man Wednesday. Wilson told the detective she had applied for a loan and would use that to pay him.

On Thursday, the detective provided photos that appeared to show Wilson’s ex-husband dead. The complaint alleges Wilson gave the detective her car title.
