LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Town Creek woman has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for her role in a murder-for-hire scheme. She will also have to pay $60,000 in restitution.

In August, a Lawrence County judge found Sandra Treadway guilty of solicitation to commit murder. She was convicted of trying to hire a hit man to kill her grandson's mother in November 2015. Authorities say Treadway wanted the woman dead so she would not get custody of the grandson.

She was caught after unknowingly hiring an undercover agent for the murder. Authorities had the intended target stage her own death in order to capture Treadway.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Sept. 26.
