COCOA, Fla. (AP) - Brevard County authorities believe a couple
tried to hire a hit man to kill the man's ex-wife.

Stuart Dale Brush and his wife, Shelley Ann Whitney-Brush, are
being held without bond on criminal solicitation of murder charges.
They were arrested Thursday.

According to a news release from the sheriff's office, the pair
wanted Brush's ex-wife dead for financial reasons.

They gave an undercover agent a small amount of cash and said they would pay $5,000 after the woman was killed.
