NYC woman arraigned in stamps-for-murder case
NEW YORK (AP) -- A New York City woman accused of offering an undercover officer a $60,000 stamp collection to kill her husband has been arraigned.
Elena Adams was held without bail on Friday on charges of conspiracy and criminal solicitation. Defense attorney Marty Lentz had no comment.
Police say the 57-year-old met with an undercover investigator inside a car in a Brooklyn neighborhood to discuss the murder-for-hire plot.
Police say Adams told the officer her husband should be struck by a hit-and-run driver on Sunday as he crossed a street after lunch. They say Adams gave the investigator a picture of her husband, the stamp collection and jewelry.
Adams was arrested at the scene.
