MIAMI (AP) - Authorities say a Miami woman helped hatch a kidnapping plot so she could collect ransom from her ex-husband.
Investigators believe Alejandra Arriaza planned her own kidnapping and that of her 17-year-old son on April 9.
According to the FBI and local South Florida law enforcement agencies, two Miami men, Angel Ponce and Joel Boza, also helped with the plan.
All three face kidnapping charges.
It was not immediately clear if they had attorneys; Arriaza is being held at the federal detention center in Miami pending a hearing on Wednesday.
