A rich Texas businessman’s failed murder-for-hire scheme to kill his wife involved a complex web of co-conspirators and tens of thousands of dollars, prosecutors say.
John Franklin "Frank" Howard was arrested last month for allegedly orchestrating the elaborate plot to kill his wife of 29 years. He now faces additional charges that he cheated his employer out of millions of dollars, ABC News reported.
Nancy Howard survived getting shot in the face outside her Carrollton home on Aug. 18. Soon after, police arrested her husband, saying he hired the 19-year-old triggerman.
