Nigerian Woman Gets Life Jail For Killing American Husband
She hired assassins to kill her American husband.
The woman wanted to get his $100,000 life insurance by taking his life, but ended up getting life imprisonment.
A Nigerian woman, Uloma Walker-Curry, who hired assassins to murder her white husband so she could make claims on his $100,000 insurance policy in 2013, has been sentenced to life imprisonment with no parole by a Cleveland court in the USA.
Uloma who was 44 at the time of the murder, and her firefighter husband, Lt. William Curry Walker, had been married for just 4 months when she contracted the trio of Chad Padgett, 21, Christopher Hein, 22, and Ryan Dorty, 23, to kill him so she could collect his life insurance policy and cover up financial fraud she committed in her husband's name.
Prosecutors told the court that Dorty ambushed Walker and shot him 4 times as he returned home from getting fast food his wife had requested.
She was convicted of aggravated murder in a scheme that was flawed from the start.
According to the court reports, Walker's ex-wife was still the beneficiary of his policy.
Walker-Curry's trial began on June 21, 2017, and she did not take the stand in her defense and would be sentenced on August 8.
Prosecutors said she was nearing financial ruin after running up tens of thousands of dollars in debt when she asked her then-17-year-old daughter and the daughter's boyfriend to find someone to kill her husband so she could collect the insurance money.
While Hein agreed to a sentence of 18 years to life, Padgett accepted 28 years to life sentence while and Dorty got 23 years to life.
