Woman in murder for hire case undergoing mental evaluation

HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — A Shelby County woman, charged in a murder for hire scheme, will undergo a mental evaluation.

83-year old Sue Hutchison of Hoover was arrested last April after being accused of trying to hire someone to kill her stepsons and her husband’s ex-wife. Investigators believe she was worried about who would inherit her husband’s estate when he died. A judge ruled on Monday that Hutchison must undergo a mental evaluation to determine if she’s fit to stand trial.

She’s currently free on bond.
