LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A woman charged with trying to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband pled not guilty during a court hearing this morning.

Elizabeth Stakelbeck, 34, was ordered to not have any contact with her ex-husband and his wife. She is still being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on $250,000 bond.

The hit man Stakelbeck is accused of trying to hire was actually an undercover FBI agent. Police say Stakelbeck tried to pay for the killing with prescription drugs.
