A woman is under arrest after police say she tried to have her husband killed.

Investigators say 57-year-old Elena Adams met with an undercover officer posing as a hitman in Sheepshead Bay.

They say the plan was for Adams to have lunch with her husband at a restaurant near Avenue Z and East 11th Street this upcoming Sunday.

Authorities say she wanted the undercover officer to crash into her husband with his car and make it look like a hit-and-run.

They say Adams offered to pay him with jewelry and a stamp collection worth about $60,000.

When she finished talking to the undercover officer, police say Adams got out of the car and was arrested.

She is being charged with conspiracy and criminal solicitation. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
