Woman Frames Ex-Husband for $1,000 child support
Nov. 5, 2011
Here’s a case about a woman who was trying to keep child custody, and more importantly the $1,000 a month child support, by framing her ex in a ‘murder for hire’ scheme.
When it comes to child custody and child support, some people really will go to any lengths.
Prosecutor Doug Hammerand said Richter “used and manipulated” Wehde, a troubled man who lived in his parents’ basement and had been befriended by Richter’s second husband. He told jurors Richter lured Wehde to her home, forced him to write in a pink spiral notebook that he’d been hired by her ex-husband to kill her and her 11-year-old son and then shot him nine times using two guns because she “could not take a chance that he would tell law enforcement that she put him up to it.”
Hammerand said Richter planted the notebook in Wehde’s car so police would find it and she’d get an advantage in an upcoming hearing where she risked losing physical custody of her son and $1,000 a month in child support payments.
