Nigeria Woman based in the US Killed her Husband to claim his life insurance

A Cleveland newlywed was convicted Friday of plotting the murder of her firefighter husband, who was fatally shot in the driveway of their home nearly four years ago,

Uloma Curry-Walker, 45, was found guilty of aggravated murder, felonious assault and conspiracy in the Nov. 3, 2013, slaying of veteran Cleveland firefighter William Walker, to whom she had been married for four months.

Jurors reached their verdict after deliberating for less than two hours. They found Curry-Walker guilty on what would have been her fourth wedding anniversary.

Prosecutors say Curry-Walker, who will be sentenced on Aug. 8, was in deep debt and nearing financial ruin when she offered $10,000 to her then-17-year-old daughter’s boyfriend, Chad Padgett, in order to kill her husband so she could benefit from his city pension and a $100,000 life insurance policy.
