Fayetteville woman charged with plotting to kill husband

Posted January 17, 2011

— A Fayetteville woman has been charged with trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband, police said Monday.

Mary Ann Locklear McLamb, 45, of Cashiers Lane, was charged with soliciting another to commit a felony. She was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $10,000 bond.

Police said they received a tip that a woman wanted someone to kill her husband, so an undercover officer arranged a meeting with her. She told the officer that she wanted him to harm Dennis McLamb, 61, and she was taken into custody, police said.

    Guess she doesn't read the news. Yes, people... hiring a hit man is illegal, and WILL get you in prison. Get a divorce. Geeze.

    I will be glad when these female domestic abusers go to jail.

    It would have been cheaper to invest in a box of hair dye and some makeup and gone out and found a new man. Less jail time too..lol

    “The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.” That quote sums up this story nicely :)

    How stupid can some people be?.........I bet the sting went something like this ........Hi Mary my name is joey (something Pizza sounding) last name..........gives her a business card that says he works for Hit-Men-R-Us.....and then informs her about the 2 for 1 special this week.............Let me stop right here...............Some people just can not think past the ends of their noses........Like my mama said.........:)

    Let me add a new slant to the story...some men you can't ask a divorce from or else they'll kill the woman. Maybe she was married to one of those types of men. It's been known to happen, right?

    I just don't understand people for the life of me! Some people just don't think about their actions or what they are doing!
