Alleged synthetic marijuana sale leads to arrest of 3 in Pearland

Three men from Sugar Land, Texas, have been charged with first-degree felony drug delivery charges after they sold a potent synthetic marijuana to undercover police officers who responded to an online advertisement for herbal incense. The police seized 1,188 packages of the synthetic marijuana weighing 12,565 grams. The men were released on $125,000 bond following their arrests.So-called designer drugs have become the focus of state law enforcement since the passage of a law last year that made them illegal in Texas.

Woman divorcing man accused of hiring assassins to kill her

A Dallas, Texas, man was in divorce court recently because his wife is seeking to end their marriage. The woman's reason for seeking the divorce? She believes her husband hired a hit man to kill her. The woman was shot in the face in August and was briefly in a coma; she lost her left eye but survived the attack. Her husband is free on $1 million bail on a criminal charge of solicitation to commit murder. According to the police, the 52-year old husband acknowledged his involvement in an affair with a woman for at least three years. Police say he hired someone to kill his wife so that he could be with his mistress in California -- a charge the man and his attorney deny. In fact, the man says he hopes he can reconcile with his wife, and his attorney says he has a written statement from the wife that she does not actually want a divorce.
