Teacher ‘hired hitman to kill her ex-hubby’
A NURSERY teacher has been arrested for trying to have her ex-husband killed.
Angela Nolen ( above), 47, has been charged with attempting to commit murder after she allegedly tried to hire a hitman to murder her hubby.
And her colleague and friend, school nurse Cathy Warren Bennett, has also been arrested for allegedly helping her and is charged with conspiracy.
She is accused of paying £3,000 to an undercover state police agent who she believed was a hit man.
Nolen, from Rocky Mount,Virginia, then planned to pay another £3,000 after her ex Paul Strickler was killed, it’s claimed.
A police source said they were tipped-off by an unnamed witness who told them Nolen and Bennett had approached them and asked about hiring a hit man.
Nolen and 63-yearold Strickler – says he is still terrified that someone might be after him – were together for 17 years before divorcing last year.
