Police: NYC woman offers stamps to pay for murder

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say they’ve arrested a woman after she offered an undercover officer a $60,000 stamp collection to kill her husband.

Police say Elena Adams was arrested Thursday and charged with conspiracy and criminal solicitation. They say the 57-year-old met with an undercover officer inside a car in the Sheepshead Bay neighborhood of Brooklyn to discuss the murder-for-hire plot.

Police say Adams told the officer her husband should be struck by a hit-and-run driver on Sunday as he crossed a street after lunch. They say Adams gave the investigator a picture of her husband, the stamp collection and jewelry.

Adams was arrested at the scene. She’s in custody and unavailable for comment. A home phone number listed in her name is out of order, and there’s no available information about an attorney for her.
