SEBASTIAN COUNTY, Ark. (KNWA) — A Sebastian County woman accused of plotting to have her husband killed has pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit capital murder.
Investigators say Mary Byers-Diaz tried to convince her handyman to carry out the elaborate murder plot, to which he was supposed to subdue the victim with a stun gun, break his neck, and then place him in a staged car crash.
The bond for Byers-Diaz remains at $200,000 cash only.
Her trial date has been set for March 2, 2020.
