A mother of 13 from Brownville has pleaded not guilty to trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband. WLBZ-TV reported that Wendy Farley, 46, entered her plea Tuesday in Piscataquis County District Court in Dover-Foxcroft. Farley was initially charged in September with criminal solicitation for murder in allegedly offering a friend between $3,000 and $10,000 to have her husband of 30 years killed. A grand jury indicted her Monday. Police said Farley wanted her husband’s death to look like a hunting accident. An affidavit said she told the friend she wanted to escape her husband’s strictness and needed her freedom.
