A married woman who was cheating on her husband planned with her boyfriend to kill the man so she could be with the lover.
A cheating housewife, Cindy Reese, 40, has been arrested and charged with first degree murder for planning with her boyfriend, Jeffrey David Brown, to murder her husband, Michael Earl Reese, so they could be together, reports Huffington Post.
Police authorities in Alabama, USA, nabbed the cheating couple after 40-year-old Reese was fatally shot in his home.
His wife had called the police to report a break-in and although the house appeared in disarray, investigators became suspicious after they realized there was no sign of forced entry.
At first, authorities suspected the 36-year-old Brown of killing Michael Reese, but they soon learned he was romantically involved with the dead man's wife.
Police say that Cindy Reese and Brown were lovers, and allege that they plotted to kill Michael Reese so they could be together.
The couple were arrested Wednesday as Brown dropped off Reese, who works for the county finance department, from a lunch date.
Jefferson County Chief Deputy Randy Christian, said:
"I think we all understand matters of the heart and the ups, downs, ebbs and flows of relationships.
What we can't understand and will never understand is someone getting so twisted, dark and lost that they believe cold-blooded murder is the answer.
Yet, here we are with three families ruined because of dark hearts, stupidity and extreme selfishness."
