HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Jury selection is set to start in the trial of a Connecticut woman accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband.

Thirty-nine-year-old Tiffany Stevens of Bloomfield is charged with attempted murder in the alleged murder-for-hire plot. The prosecution and defense are scheduled to begin picking jurors Monday in Hartford Superior Court.

Prosecutors allege Stevens paid a maintenance man $5,000 to kill her ex-husband, Eric Stevens, in 2012, when they were involved in a divorce and child custody case that remains pending. Police said the custody case winner apparently would control a $50 million fund linked to their daughter’s care.

The would-be hit man told police about the plot.

Tiffany Stevens posted $1 million bail and still has custody of her daughter. She has pleaded not guilty.
