LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — A Washington state woman has been arrested on suspicion of planning to kill her estranged husband and two others.

The Longview Daily News reports 54-year-old Dawn Renee Rolfe appeared in Cowlitz Superior Court Monday following her arrest Friday.

Authorities say a co-worker at Rolfe's job reported to sheriff's deputies in August that Rolfe told her a detailed plan to have her husband of 25 years killed.

Police say Rolfe sought revenge against her husband for leaving her and wanted to arrange his death, as well as the killings of his mother and new girlfriend.

Records indicate Rolfe initially planned to shoot them herself, but later asked the co-worker to accompany her to Portland, Oregon, to offer money and jewelry to someone to commit the killings.
