A Pierz woman was arrested and subsequently charged with first degree, premeditated felony conspiracy to commit murder, after she allegedly tried to hire someone to kill her ex-huband for $200.
Nancy Leona Meyer, 43, was arrested April 12, after a woman reported to the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office that Meyer had been texting her asking for help in killing her ex-husband, Jeff Fisk, and also sent a text containing his address in Morrison County.
The woman placed a phone call to Meyer, while an investigator recorded the call, asking how much pay was involved if she were to “go through with the plot,” the criminal complaint said.
While being recorded, Meyer allegedly told the woman she could start with $200, did not want her kids involved, told the person the location of her ex-husband’s bedroom, asked that the murder be committed on Sunday and that she wanted a gun with a silencer used as the weapon. In addition, Meyer agreed to provide a description of her ex-husband and asked for a phone call confirming her ex-husband’s death.
After the recorded phone call, officers were ordered to arrest Meyer at her place of employment and her cell phone was seized.
At the Morrison County Jail, Meyer declined to give a formal statement, but allegedly told the officer, if her ex-husband “allows me to see my frickin’ children, none of this woulda happened.” Meyer’s children are adults.
Meyer was charged April 13 in Morrison County District Court. Bail was set at $200,000 bond/$20,000 cash with no conditions necessary for her release or $100,000/$10,000 cash with conditions.
Several court appearances may take place before a date for an omnibus hearing is set.
If found guilty, Meyer faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
