DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — Murder-for-hire suspect Wendy Farley of Brownville offered a friend nicknamed “Mafia Mike” $3,000 to $10,000 to find someone to kill her husband in a sham hunting accident to escape what she called her religious husband’s strictness, according to a police affidavit released Thursday in Piscataquis County Superior Court. The man she approached, Michael Anderson of Milo, secretly recorded at police suggestion Farley saying she wanted her husband, Luther “Rusty” Farley, shot dead with a typical .30-30 hunting rifle — “nothing fancy, nothing stupid, nothing traceable” — and that she wanted the deed done by the end of the month, according to the affidavit. “A straight hit, that’s what I want,” Farley, 46, is recorded telling Anderson, according to the affidavit. “One shot — drop him.” When Anderson asked Farley why she wanted her husband dead, she allegedly replied that while her husband had never been physically abusive to her or their 13 children, some of the adult children had moved out of their New Morning Farm on Russell Road to escape his strictness and complaining.
