ROCKY MOUNT, Va. (AP) - A kindergarten teacher has pleaded guilty in Franklin County to trying to have her ex-husband killed.

Media outlets report that 47-year-old Angela Nolen pleaded guilty Tuesday in Franklin County Circuit Court to solicit to commit murder.

Police say the Moneta resident paid an undercover state police agent $4,000 to kill Paul Strickler. She planned to pay another $4,000 after her ex-husband was killed.

Nolen is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 9. She faces up to 40 years in prison.

A co-defendant, school nurse Cathy Bennett of Rocky Mount, is accused of helping Nolen. She's charged with conspiracy.

Bennett remains free on bond. Her trial is set for July.

Nolen was a teacher at Sontag Elementary School. Bennett was a nurse at the school.
