Sting thwarts $2,000 hit on ex-wife

PRINCETON, Ind. – State police say a southwestern Indiana couple have been arrested on charges they tried to hire a hit man to kill the man’s ex-wife.

Police said the couple was arrested after 31-year-old Jason Ray Gardner of Princeton met an undercover federal agent Sunday night at a Walmart parking lot. Police said Gardner paid the officer $900 and agreed to pay an additional $1,100 after his ex-wife is killed.

Gardner and his wife, 42-year-old Pamela Gardner, were being held without bond Monday in the Gibson County Jail on conspiracy to commit murder charges. A jail officer said they didn’t immediately have an attorney.

Police said Jason Gardner gave the agent a description of his ex-wife along with her address and details of her vehicle.
