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.
