SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) - A Sedalia man and woman have been charged with attempting to hire someone to kill the woman’s husband.

The Sedalia Democrat (https://bit.ly/1TfwgO4 ) reports that 45-year-old Terry Johnson and 43-year-old Wendy Sue McGinnis are jailed on charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. No attorneys are listed for them in online court records.

Court documents say a confidential informant reported that during a conversation with the pair, McGinnis said she was willing to pay someone to kill her husband and mentioned she was a beneficiary to his life insurance policy.

McGinnis initially told a patrol sergeant last week that she only wanted her husband hurt. But she said she changed her mind and agreed to pay the man $25,000 to have her husband killed and make it look like an accident.
