LOUISVILLE, KY (AP) – Federal officials say a Louisville pediatrician has been arrested on charges she hatched a murder-for-hire scheme targeting her former husband.
The U.S. Attorney says Dr. Stephanie Russell allegedly contacted someone on May 15 she believed was a hitman, but it was a person working undercover for the FBI. She allegedly agreed to pay $7,000 for the hit.
She has been charged with using interstate commerce in a murder-for-hire scheme. It could land her in prison for up to 10 years.
