Crime Writer’s Stories Get Real

jail cellA crime writer from Texas will spend the next 30 years behind bars… and it’s not research for one of her stories.

Police say 54-year-old Nancy Mancuso Gelber hired a hitman to kill her husband. An informant tipped off police to the plot.

An officer — who posed as a hitman — said Gelber called her husband “sweet as could be,” and said she didn’t want the killing to look like murder, but instead, said “I want it to look like an accident.”

She won’t be eligible for parole until 2027.
