Puerto Rican woman accused in murder-for-hire plot

Puerto Rican woman accused in murder-for-hire plot

U.S. authorities have arrested a Puerto Rican woman accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill her father.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says 28-year-old Xenya Taimi Rivera allegedly offered the hit man $3,000 to kill Edwin Rivera Sanchez. Officials said Rivera asked the hit man to make the death look like a fatal robbery and planned to use her father's Social Security and other checks to pay for the alleged killing.
Officials accuse her of conspiring with her mother, Julia Elena Rivera.
Authorities said FBI agents arrested both women before Rivera was killed.
A source close to the investigation who was not authorized to publicly release the information said Friday that the man allegedly abused his wife.
