Fort Myers, Florida (AP) --

Police say they arrested a woman for allegedly trying to hire someone to kill her husband in exchange for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Fort Myers Police say they arrested 53-year-old Kimberly Alters
on Sunday, Sept. 26. Alters was arrested after meeting with a person who turned out to be a confidential informant. Authorities say Alters
gave the informant a photo of her husband and $125 to buy a
firearm, then said she wanted the hit done while she and her
children were visiting a theme park.

Alters was charged with solicitation to commit murder,
possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and two
counts of possession of a controlled substance.

She remains in Lee County Jail without bond. It is unclear
whether she has retained an attorney.

    Why didn't she just use the harley to run over him, and then she'd still have it? Unless, like some redneck husbands (and wives), he's bigger than the Harley! :^)
