LEBANON, Ohio -- A woman convicted of trying to have her ex-husband killed in early May will spend a little more than three years in prison, a judge ruled Monday.
Heather Boling, 28, was sentenced Monday to four years in prison with 214 days jail credit for time served after authorities said she used Facebook to attempt to hire someone in Indianapolis to kill her ex.
In May, a person contacted Indianapolis officials and tipped them off about Boling’s alleged plan, which led to her arrest, according to a police report.
On May 17, an undercover Warren County detective posed as a hit man and set up a meeting with Boling at an outlet mall in Monroe, police said.
Investigators said Boling exchanged money with the undercover officer in the mall's parking lot and Warren County Drug Task Force members arrested her.
Boling, of Pleasant Plain, Ohio, was charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated murder in Lebanon Municipal Court.
Boling has two children — an 11-month-old and an 8-year-old. The father of the 8-year-old was awarded custody on the child.
