—  A Raleigh man was arrested Tuesday on charges that he conspired to kill his ex-wife.

Tyler Wayne Callihan, 43, of 5801 Lease Lane, faces one count of felony conspiracy and one count of solicitation to commit a felony.

He was in the Wake County jail under a $2 million bond Thursday.

Arrest warrants accuse Callihan of seeking out Dahshon Wayne Crudup, 20, to kill Sandra Callihan.

Crudup, 20, of 3609 Castlegate in Raleigh, was indicted on first-degree murder in May in the death of Reginald Dunn and has been in police custody ever since, according to court records.

Dunn was found shot to death on a Raleigh street in May. Crudup is one of five men charged in the case.

Documents filed last month in civil court indicate that Callihan and his wife divorced in 2006. They have two children.

Wake County Sheriff’s Office investigators have declined to comment on the case.
