Wendy Farley, of Brownville, was initially charged in September with criminal solicitation for murder for allegedly offering a friend between $3,000 and $10,000 to have her husband of 30 years killed.

DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine (AP) _ A mother of 13 from Brownville has pleaded not guilty to trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband.

WLBZ-TV reported that 46-year-old Wendy Farley entered her plea Tuesday in Piscataquis County District Court in Dover-Foxcroft.

Farley was initially charged in September with criminal solicitation for murder for allegedly offering a friend between $3,000 and $10,000 to have her husband of 30 years killed. A grand jury indicted her on Monday.

Police say Farley wanted her husband's death to look like a hunting accident. An affidavit says she told the friend she wanted to escape her husband's strictness and needed her freedom.

Farley remains in jail pending trial.
