Roswell, N.M. — A woman who allegedly conspired with her boyfriend to hire someone to kill the boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend so she could not testify against him in a stalking case has been arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

Julia Waser, 56, was arrested March 15 at the southwest Roswell apartment where she was living. She is scheduled to appear in Magistrate Court Wednesday (March 28) for a preliminary hearing in this case.

Waser is accused of paying $2,300 to another woman who was to kill the intended target. However, Waser’s boyfriend called off the murder before it was carried out, investigators learned.
