Jolene Kay Hardy, 55, of 3804 Perney Court, was arrested July 17 in the death of 60-year-old Gerald Douglas Hardy.
In the 911 call, Jolene Hardy said she found his body after he had left sometime on July 15 and she went out searching for him. She added that her husband had suffered from lymphoma for six years and went to "gang areas" hoping he would be killed so he wouldn't die of the disease.
A relative of Gerald Hardy, who asked for her identity to be concealed, said both Hardys complained of relationship problems as far back as 2004.
