The estranged wife of a 36-year-old man who was fatally shot last month in his Frisco house was arrested Thursday on a charge of criminal solicitation of murder.
Vera Elizabeth Guthrie-Nail, 42, of Carrollton has been charged with trying to hire someone to kill her husband, Craig Nail.
She and Mr. Nail had been involved since May 2006 in a contentious divorce that involved a custody battle over their 6-year-old daughter.
On the night of Dec. 26, Mr. Nail's girlfriend, Therisa Hofman, walked into his house in the 8500 block of Pebblebrook Drive from the garage. She was attacked and shot multiple times, but managed to get to a neighbor's house, where police were called. When Frisco investigators arrived, they were told to check on Mr. Nail. He had been shot multiple times and was found dead, Frisco police Sgt. Gerald Meadors said.
Ms. Hofman survived her injuries.
The investigation into the shooting is ongoing, Sgt. Meadors said, and police would not discuss who Ms. Guthrie-Nail is accused of asking to kill her husband.
Ms. Guthrie-Nail was arrested in Carrollton. She was being held in the Frisco City Jail on $100,000 bond, but is expected to be moved to the Collin County Jail.
