Cynthia Guy Acquires New Legal Counsel; Murder-For-Hire Trial Pushed Back To January 2016
The trail date for a Casper woman accused trying to hire a hit-man to kill her ex-husband has been changed.
Cynthia Guy, who has pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental illness to one charge of solicitation of first degree murder, has now hired private legal counsel, and her September 21st trial date, has been rescheduled to January 2016, because her counsel is not available for the original court date, due to other legal cases that they must attend to.
Guy has also waived her right to a speedy trial.
She is accused of asking several of her patients, if she knew of anyone that would carry out a hit against her ex-husband, in exchange for their early release from counseling at the Central Wyoming Counseling Center.
Law enforcement was alerted, and Guy ended up meeting with an undercover agent, who recorded the conversation.
She has had several court ordered mental evaluations between the time of her arrest and now, hence that is part of the reason why it has taken so long, to get the case to trial.
She is being held on $250,000 bond awaiting trial, and could receive up to life in prison without parole, if convicted.
