Va. woman charged with murder-for-hire in husband's death

A Norfolk woman has been accused of hiring someone to kill her husband allegedly to split the proceeds of an insurance policy.

An indictment in Chesterfield County Circuit Court charges 24-year-old Delilah Wiley with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and using a firearm in a felony. Her husband, 25-year-old Dell Shawn Wiley, was fatally shot outside a Chester industrial plant in 2008.

A 27-year-old Petersburg man, Christopher Tyrone Clagon, was sentenced last year to 38 years in prison after being convicted of first-degree murder and felony use of a firearm. His attorney said prosecutors believed Wiley had agreed to split the proceeds of a $10,000 insurance policy with Clagon.

Wiley is being held without bond at Riverside Regional Jail.
