DOVER-FOXCROFT — A mother of 13 from Brownville charged with trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband will be allowed to see her minor children.

Forty-six-year-old Wendy Farley appeared in a Dover-Foxcroft courtroom Tuesday asking a judge to have her bail conditions changed to allow contact with her children who are under 18.

WABI-TV reported that the judge agreed to the visits, but said they have to be supervised by four of her adult children.

Farley was charged last month with criminal solicitation for murder for allegedly offering a friend between $3,000 and $10,000 to have her husband of 30 years killed. According to a police affidavit, she wanted her husband killed in a sham hunting accident to escape what she called her religious husband’s strictness.
