A 47-year-old woman is accused of helping her boyfriend hire a hit man to kill his wife.

Cynthia Lisa Mills, from Annapolis, Maryland, has been arrested for her connection to the murder-for-hire plot for which her boyfriend, Wendell Mansel, was arrested in August.

According to Anne Arundel County Police, Mills was having an affair with Mansel at the time and helped plan and provided some of the money used to hire the police officer who posed as a hit man.

When he met the undercover officer about the murder, he had a gun and valuables with him which he intended to use as partial payment for the hit.

Mansel was charged with attempted capital murder, murder-for-hire and soliciting murder-for-hire.

Mills is charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, solicitation of murder, and attempted first-degree murder. She is being held without bond.

Police only discovered their affair after Mansel was arrested.

She turned herself in to Anne Arundel police after investigators obtained a warrant for her arrest on Friday, police said.

Mansel’s attorney, Peter Greenspun, said his client is on leave from the Department of Energy, though he declined to specify his job there.

Mansel is also a Navy reservist who served in Afghanistan, Greenspun said.

'He’s a guy with a fantastic and productive background who’s served his country well. This is a difficult and tragic situation, and we’re working through it.'
