New Wife Has Husband Killed For Insurance Money, Then Finds Out The Beneficiary is THIS Person
In that-is-just-what-you-deserved news, we present the following story…

A woman who has been accused of soliciting her husband’s murder in order to collect $100,000 in life insurance has been convicted of aggravated murder. Boom.

45-year-old Uloma Curry-Walker is now facing life in prison without the possibility of parole for the November 2013 killing of William Walker, whom she has wed just months earlier. The most ridiculous part of this is that she didn’t understand that his ex-wife was still the beneficiary of his policy.

Stupid people do stupid things and evil people do evil things and sometimes these overlap. Clearly.

According to Cleveland.com, prosecutors claim the woman was approaching financial ruin; she was tens of thousands of dollars in debt. She allegedly asked her 17-year-old daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend to find someone to kill her husband.

William had not yet changed the beneficiary on the insurance policy from his ex-wife’s name to his then-current wife. Which means, drumroll please, his ex-wife was paid out the money. 

Testimony at the trial has revealed that Uloma gave her daughter’s boyfriend, Chad Padgett, $1,000 as a down payment to execute the murder. Chad enlisted the help of his cousin Chris Hein, who initially failed to kill Walker. Chris later asked Ryan Dorty to handle the hit. 
Prosecutors claim that Ryan shot William four times as he returned home from getting fast food, which Uloma had asked him to pick up. Ugh, that’s awful.

The three co-conspirators testified against Uloma as part of a plea agreement. Chris was sentenced to 18 years to life; Chad 28 years to life; and Ryan 23 years to life. Uloma’s daughter was not hit with adult charges for the crime and was instead ordered to spend a month in a juvenile detention center. 

Sentencing for Uloma Curry-Walker is scheduled for August 8. She probably will not do very well in prison.
