Murder for Hire Plot Thickens at Southern District Police Station Saturday

In October, a Loudon County (Virginia) Grand Jury indicted William Brian Mansel, of Annapolis, for attempting to hire a contract killer to kill his wife. Mansel gave guns and cash to an undercover police officer who posed as a hit man. Mansel was taken into custody in August of 2012.

On Saturday (Jan. 11), the focus of the case moved to Anne Arundel County, where Cynthia Lisa Mills, 47, was taken into custody for conspiring with Mansel to solicit murder. Mills turned herself in to police at the Southern District Station in Edgewater.

She was charged with conspiracy to commit first degree murder, solicitation of murder, and attempted first degree murder.

Police believe Mills to be Mansel’s mistress.

Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Lt. Francis Tewey said that after Mansel was arrested by Virginia Police in Leesburg, Loudon County, homicide detectives continued to investigate the case, where they learned Mills had provided some of the funds that were paid to the undercover police officer who posed as the hit man.

Mills lives in the 1600 block of Cananaro Drive. She is being held without bond.
