Teen admits to helping set up hit that left firefighter dead

CLEVELAND (AP) — A 19-year-old woman has admitted to participating in a murder-for-hire plot that left a Cleveland firefighter dead in August 2013.

Cleveland.com reports (http://bit.ly/1YW2pbB ) the woman was 17 years old at the time of the killing and pleaded guilty Thursday to delinquency charges in Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court in the death of Lt. William Walker.

Prosecutors say Uloma Walker-Curry worked with three men to have her 45-year-old husband killed to hide financial fraud using his name and to collect on a life insurance policy to pay for her debts.

Authorities say Walker-Curry gave cash to the girl, who gave the money to her boyfriend. Prosecutors say the boyfriend recruited his cousin, who hired another man to carry out the killing.

Walker-Curry and the three other men have pleaded not guilty.
