Tennessee Woman Accused of Trying to Hire a Hitman to Kill her Ex-Husband

ALGOOD, Tenn. (AP) -- An Algood woman is in jail, charged with trying to hire a man to kill her ex-husband.

Paulette Sherfield Goodeon is charged with conspiracy and solicitation to commit first-degree murder. She is being held on a $500,000 bond in the Putnam County Jail.

Algood Police Chief Jim Eldridge says the 42-year-old is accused of hiring a hit man to kill Scott Goodeon. The man she allegedly tried to hire was undercover Jackson County Sheriff's Detective Marty Hinson.

Police say the woman supplied hypodermic syringes, potassium chloride and a .22-caliber pistol. Potassium chloride is one of three drugs used in lethal injections. She also allegedly offered $5,000.

Algood is about 75 miles east of Nashville.
