Mansfield, PA (WBNG Binghamton) A Mansfield woman was arrested by Pennsylvania State Police, accused of trying to solicit two undercover troopers to kill her estranged husband.

Troopers arrested Alberta J. Rolfe, 62, Wednesday for solicitation of criminal homicide and a firearms violation.

Rolfe set up a meeting with two undercover troopers and said she wanted her estranged husband, Lyle Rolfe, 64, of Geneva, killed for financial gain.

She gave a title to a vehicle, a laptop and a handgun for payment for the crime.

After arrangements were made, Rolfe was taken into custody. She is being held in the Tioga County jail awaiting arraignment.
