UNION CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- A former Union City pastor and a woman who was part of his congregation are charged with plotting to kill his wife.
The Union City Daily Messenger reports that 54-year-old Edward Paul "Eddie" Mallonee and 40-year-old Shelley Shannon Moran of Franklin were indicted Monday in Obion County.
Both are charged with conspiring for more than two years to commit first-degree murder and attempt to commit first-degree murder by poisoning his wife, Cathy.
