Court Orders Evaluation for Woman Accused of Murder-for-Hire

Cynthia Guy Thomas
Casper Police Dept.

A Casper woman charged last week with trying to hire someone to kill her ex-husband will undergo an evaluation to determine if she is competent to stand trial.

Thursday, Cynthia Guy-Thomas appeared at her preliminary hearing during which prosecutors would have presented testimony that law enforcement had probable cause to arrest her on based on evidence that a crime was committed it and that she probably had committed it.

If that had happened and Natrona County Circuit Court Judge Brian Christensen agreed with prosecutors, he would have bound Guy-Thomas over to district court to stand trial.

But Christensen instead ordered that she undergo an evaluation and then appear for another preliminary hearing at a later date.

Guy-Thomas was a therapist at the Central Wyoming Counseling Center and asked two of her clients if they knew anyone who will kill her ex-husband who lives in Cheyenne, according to court records.

The clients alerted the center’s administration, which allowed a meeting between Guy-Thomas and the client, with that leading to contacting an undercover agent on May 16. Two days later, she met with that agent in Glendo and paid him $2,000 in advance with the promise of full payment after the killing.

On May 21, Casper police arrested her. She was charged with one count of solicitation of a felony — murder — and ordered held on $250,000 bond.
