Woman Sentenced in Va. Murder for Hire Plot

May 1, 2012

A Georgia woman has been sentenced to six years in prison for trying to hire someone to kill her ex-husband.

U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride says 48-year-old Enid Albertha Collins of Lawrenceville, Ga., was sentenced Monday in federal court in Norfolk.

Collins pleaded guilty in December, admitting she agreed to pay a hit man in Hampton $1,500 to kill her ex-husband, who lives in Virginia Beach with their twin 16-year-old daughters. Collins had been ordered to pay child support.

Collins sent the hit man $400 to purchase a handgun and ordered him to kill her ex-husband on July 1, 2011, after he met Collins in Concord, N.C., to drop off the twins to spend the summer with her in Georgia. The Hampton man contacted local authorities, who arrested Collins.
