A Norfolk woman has been accused of hiring someone to kill her husband allegedly to split the proceeds of an insurance policy.
An indictment in Chesterfield County Circuit Court charges 24-year-old Delilah Wiley with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and using a firearm in a felony. Her husband, 25-year-old Dell Shawn Wiley, was shot outside a Chester industrial plant in 2008.
Christopher Clagon of Petersburg is serving a 38-year prison term after being convicted of first-degree murder and felony use of a firearm. His attorney said prosecutors believed Wiley had agreed to split the proceeds of a $10,000 insurance policy with Clagon.
Wiley is being held without bond at Riverside Regional Jail. A message left with Wiley's attorney was not immediately returned Thursday.
