SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A Spartanburg County woman has pleaded guilty to charges of conspiring to have her husband killed.
Thirty-eight-year-old Angela Dawn Fowler faces up to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to kidnapping, conspiring to kill her husband and accessory after the fact of murder.
The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported that Circuit Judge Paul Burch agreed to delay sentencing Fowler until the end of Robert Lee Heydman's trial, which was to begin Wednesday.
Heydman is been charged with murder in the beating death of 34-year-old Richard Craig Fowler.
Prosecutor Barry Barnette said Angela Fowler and Heydman had become friends and she had talked about growing discontent in her marriage.
Barnette said Heydman said he could take care of her problem.
