Woman accused of hiring hitman to kill husband

Alishia Noel-Murray is accused of hiring a hitman to kill her husband Omar Murray.

A Brooklyn woman is facing life without parole for allegedly hiring a man to kill her husband, and trying to cash in on nearly $900,000 in insurance money, prosecutors said.

When poisoning her husband didn’t work, Alishia Noel-Murray turned to her boyfriend for help getting her spouse out of the picture, asking her lover to find someone to kill Omar Murray in Feb. 2013, officials said.

Noel-Murray, 28, had two problems, and thought she could solve them both at the same time, said Assistant District Attorney Emily Dean during opening statements Monday at Noel-Murray’s murder trial in Brooklyn Supreme Court.

She was having financial difficulties, and she wasn’t getting along with Murray, 37, with whom she shared a 10-month-old son.
