A University District woman was arrested today after trying to pay $10,000 for the murder of her husband, Columbus police said.

Tasha A. Woody, 38, of 1337 N. 5th St., was charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated murder, a felony, after police said she tried to hire a man, who turned out to be a police detective, to kill her husband, Michael Woody. According to county records, the couple married in 2011.

Detectives arranged a meeting with the woman after receiving a tip that she was looking for someone to murder her husband, said Sgt. Rich Weiner, a Columbus police spokesman. At the meeting on Thursday morning, Woody provided a photo of her husband to a detective and set up a time and place for the killing.

She promised to pay $10,000 for the killing later, police said.

Woody was being held in the Franklin County jail, court records show.

Haven't these people figured out yet that it's ALWAYS an undercover agent! Just goes to show- when you want a job done right- you've got to do it yourself.
