PEORIA, AZ - The wife of a Peoria man found dead in his garage earlier this month has been arrested in the case.
Peoria police say 41-year-old Michelle Dawn Gibson is being held without bond on suspicion of conspiring to commit murder in the first degree, conspiracy and hindering prosecution.
They don't know Friday if she has a lawyer.
The couple's teenage son was previously taken into custody in connection with the death of 39-year-old Steven Gibson.
His body was found dead at the family's Peoria home about 2 a.m. on March 1.
Police believe Gibson conspired with her son and three other teens to kill her husband.
Court documents indicate she was to pay 16-year old Eric McBee, who is now charged in the case, and another teen $2000 to split once the job was done.
Court records indicate her son and two other teens were also involved in the planning.
Police say McBee beat Gibson with a bat. Court records indicate that his McBee called Gibson's son and the son returned to the home and stabbed his father at least three times.
The court records indicate that Michelle Gibson wanted to "kill him before he killed them."
Court documents show there were previous domestic violence incidents involving Gibson and his spouse.
