During the investigation, police learned that Mills helped plan and provided some of the money used to hire the officer who posed as a "hitman," police said. 

Earlier in 2012, Mansel approached a Leesburg, Va. man while looking to hire a contract killer. The Leesburg man contacted police and an immediate investigation launched.

Cynthia Mills is charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, solicitation of murder, and attempted first-degree murder. She is being held without bond.
