ACSO Foils Murder-for-Hire Plot

 

Aiken, SC., April 25 – The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office Thursday afternoon arrested an Aiken woman, who tried to hire an undercover ACSO investigator to murder her husband.

 

Margaret D. Stephens, 41, 411 Heathwood Drive , Aiken , South Carolina , is charged with Solicitation to Commit a Felony – Murder.

 

About 3:30 p.m., Stephens met an undercover investigator in the parking lot of Save-A-Lot, at the corner of York Street and Hampton Avenue , in Aiken.

 

“Mrs. Stephens told our investigator she wanted the death to look like an accident and agreed to a price,” said Sheriff Michael Hunt. “We gave her a chance to change her mind, but she chose not to do it.”

 

ACSO is withholding the identity of the victim.

 

About a week ago, ACSO learned of the plot from an independent source. ACSO learned from its investigation the subject was distraught about her family situation and was attempting to regain control of the family finances.

 

Upon conviction, Solicitation to Commit a Felony – Murder carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.

 

The subject is being held at the Aiken County Detention Center .
