|Wednesday, January 16, 2013|
A Mt. Juliet woman was arrested Monday and faces charges of allegedly trying to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband.
Detectives with the Wilson County Sheriff’s Department received information on Jan. 9 that the suspect, Bryam Megan Ewers, 42, of Mt. Juliet, was reportedly trying to hire a hit man. They developed a plan where Ewers could contact an undercover officer who would pose as the hit man.
After Ewers reportedly made contact, a meeting was set up to occur on Monday, Jan. 14, to arrange the hit. An undercover officer met with Ewers in a Lebanon parking lot. The meeting was recorded, and during the conversation she allegedly agreed to pay $5,000 to have her ex-husband killed.
Ewers also reportedly supplied photos of her ex-husband and his residence to assist in carrying out the hit.
After the conversation, detectives arrested Ewers and transported her to the Wilson County Jail where she was charged with Solicitation to Commit First Degree Murder. Bond was set at $1 million.
After her arrest, a search warrant was issued for her residence at 1621 West Wilson Blvd., Mt. Juliet, where additional evidence was reportedly found, including a large amount of cash as well as computer equipment.
Ewers has a preliminary court date of Feb. 14.
