LEBANON, Ohio (WDTN) - It's something he thought only happened in the movie.
Heather Boling's ex-husband spoke to me off camera Friday night and says he's very shaken up.
It's been 7 years since the couple divorced but now Boling is behind bars for trying to have him murdered.
Warren County detectives tell 2 NEWS they were contacted by Indianapolis Police after they had received information about a Warren County woman attempting to find someone in Indianapolis to kill her ex-husband.
Investigators say an undercover officer posing as a hitman set up a meeting with her and she gave him money to do the job. They wouldn't say how much.
Investigators believe this all stems from a custody issue over their child.
"People get divorced but they're going to be that child's parent for the rest of that child's life. So anytime there's an opportunity for that kind of action, I guess there's an opportunity for conflict on the part of those ex-spouses," says Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell.
Fornshell says the top priority was the ex-husband's safety.
"We knew that she was serious about wanting to do this hit on her ex-husband. But, what we didn't know was whether there were other people out there that she may have been talking to who may have responded more quickly than our undercover officer," he explains.
The ex-husband tells 2 NEWS that he and his son are going to get through this tough time but it will be hard.
2 NEWS put in a request for an jailhouse interview with Boling but haven't heard back.
2 NEWS also went to her home this evening to see if her family wanted to talk but they declined to comment.
Boling's LinkedIn Page says that she worked for the United States Air Force but Wright Patterson Air Force Base tells 2 NEWS she's not a civilian employee.
Investigators would only say that she was affiliated with the military.
If Boling is convicted, she faces up to 11 years in prison.
She's expected to make her first court appearance in Lebanon Municipal Court Monday.
