FAIRVIEW, Okla. — A 25-year-old woman is in custody after authorities uncovered a murder for hire plot, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

On July 10, 2019, the Major County Sheriff’s Office requested the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation assist with an investigation involving Kandi Neilson.

Neilson attempted to hire a hitman to kill her estranged wife and her estranged wife’s new boyfriend, according to officials. OSBI agents, with assistance from the Major County Sheriff’s Office, arrested Neilson July 12.

Neilson was booked on a complaint of solicitation of first-degree murder into Major County jail. She was denied bond.

A search of online court records showed Neilson has not been formally charged.
