Husband of victim indicted in alleged murder-for-hire plot
(2008-06-12)
(WOUB) - A Jackson County man could face the death penalty if convicted of his wife's killing in an alleged murder-for-hire plot.

The Columbus Dispatch reports 73-year-old David Evans was indicted by a grand jury yesterday on aggravated murder charges with a death-penalty specification.

Evans was arrested Tuesday and charged in the March 26 strangulation death of his wife, Carol, in their rural Jackson County home.

Authorities are still exploring a motive and have not suggested who entered the family's home to beat and strangle Mrs. Evans.

David Evans is the fourth person arrested in the case.

The other three are charged with conspiracy.
