WOW!

I saw this on the news this morning. Could NOT believe it. What do you think?

ALLEN, Texas -- A woman found a stranger in her bedroom, but the man said he
was there to warn her that he had been hired to kill her, police said.

"Your husband wants you murdered," the man told Roxane Sterling on Nov. 21,
according to police reports.
He told Sterling, who is eight months' pregnant, to call police.


Her husband, Albert Jackson Sterling II, was arrested in Alamogordo, N.M.,
on two counts of criminal solicitation of murder -- one for his wife and
another for their unborn child, authorities said.


Authorities said the man who warned Sterling was not charged with a crime.
They did not release his name.


"He did not go there with the intent to murder her," said Capt. Robert
Flores. "He went with the intent to warn her."


The man had entered the family's empty house while Sterling was out and her
husband and their 3-year-old son were visiting relatives in New Mexico.


Investigators said Albert Sterling, 38, had offered the man a large amount
of money to kill his wife and had helped him get into the house in this
Dallas suburb.

I have heard of other hubbies trying to get their wives murdered, but never of the guy that was hired warning any of them. A good story.
