DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A federal judge has denied bond for a man
who is accused of plotting to have his wife and her male friend
killed at the Dothan apartment they shared.
The Dothan Eagle reports Thursday that U.S. District Judge Charles Coody called 52-year-old Steven Michael Capshaw a flight risk and a danger to the community.
Agents with the FBI and Dothan police detectives arrested
Capshaw earlier this month on a murder-for-hire charge that alleged
he tried to have his wife and her friend murdered.
Coody declined to release Capshaw from custody under any
condition after an extensive court hearing.
The murder-for-hire scheme apparently was hatched after Capshaw
claimed his wife recently left him by giving him a letter indicating she wanted a divorce.
Court records show Sandra Gail Capshaw filed for divorce against her husband in August.
