Woman Kills Husband For Insurance Money - Forgot To Account For One Thing

Uloma Walker-Curry, 45, thought she had a foolproof plan in place to get her hands on some cool hard cash. She had just married William Walker four months prior, but it sounds like things weren’t going along too swimmingly for the newlyweds.

Walker-Curry decided to kill two birds with one stone.

As CBS News shares, she hatched a plan to have her husband murdered. That would leave her in line to collect his $100,000 life insurance policy - or so she thought.

She went ahead and had her dear husband knocked off, but it was Walker’s ex-wife that was still listed as the beneficiary.

That was just one of Walker-Curry’s many errors in her disturbing plan. She even recruited her then 17-year-old daughter, her daughter’s boyfriend and two other men to take out Walker back in 2013.

“Testimony showed that Walker-Curry gave the boyfriend, Chad Padgett, a $1,000 down payment to carry out the murder. Padgett contacted his cousin Chris Hein, who initially failed in his attempt to kill Walker,” CBS reports. “Hein then turned to Ryan Dorty to carry out the killing.”

Dorty would find success in cold-blooded fashion.

“Prosecutors said Dorty ambushed Walker and shot him four times as he returned home from getting fast food Walker-Curry had requested,” CBS continues. “She and her husband were packing the night he was killed for a move to a house they had purchased outside Cleveland.”

The ensuing investigation exposed a number of holes in the botched plot, and Walker-Curry was charged with aggravated murder. Her crack team of accomplices folded under questioning.

“The daughter, Padgett, Hein and Dorty testified against Walker-Curry at trial as part of plea deal for their roles in the murder conspiracy. Hein agreed to a sentence of 18 years to life; Padgett 28 years to life; and Dorty 23 years to life,” CBS adds.

“Prosecutors agreed not to seek adult charges against Walker-Curry's daughter. She will instead spend a month in a juvenile detention center.”

The daughter would explain that her loving mother imparted some words of wisdom on her prior to the act being carried out.

"No one would believe I would hire a bunch of kids to kill someone when I know people that could," the daughter testified.

Walker-Curry was proven to be wrong on that count as well. Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Blaise Thomas laid out a clear-cut case for the jury to consider.

“There was one person who wanted William Walker dead and it was Uloma Curry-Walker,” he said. “And she paid these young people and ruined their lives to accomplish her criminal purpose.”

The jury concurred, as Walker-Curry was found guilty. She’s due to be sentenced next month, and she faces life in prison. No word on whether or not the ex-wife has received funds from the policy due to her ex-husband’s brutal slaying.

As for Walker-Curry, she deserves whatever is coming to her, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed that it’s nothing less than the maximum.
