WALLINGFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A woman from Wallingford is accused of plotting to viciously assault and hospitalize her ex-husband, according to police.

Cynthia Hannon, 59, was arrested Tuesday night.

Police said they staged an undercover investigation where Hannon hired a police informant for $2,500.

Hannon provided the informant with detailed information about her ex-husband, including his daily routine and a photograph of him.

Police said she partially paid the informant under an agreement that the remaining amount would be handed over once the assault was complete.

Detectives arrested Hannon at her home without incident.

She was charged and held on a $100,000 bond.

Hannon was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday morning.

Police said the investigation into this case is ongoing.
