GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Police say a 29-year-old Gainesville woman is accused of trying to hire a man to kill another man.

She was arrested Friday night after Gainesville police investigators recorded a phone call she made to the man.

Victoria Leigh Sargento-Graham called the witness early Friday and asked him to drive her home. When they arrived, she asked him to kill the other man. Their relationship redacted in a police report.

The man contacted police who recorded the phone call. Sargento-Graham is being held on a $500,000 bond. A lawyer wasn’t listed on jail records.
