LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Louisville woman accused of attempting to hire an undercover FBI agent to kill her ex-husband has accepted a plea deal.

Elizabeth Stakelbeck was arrested Aug. 20, 2013 and was charged with conspiracy to commit murder. 

On March 25, she entered a guilty plea for 15 years in prison on charges of solicitation to murder and other offenses.

According to a police report, Stakelbeck put a hit on her ex-husband and his current wife. She was nabbed when officers said she brought an FBI agent pills in a container with her name on it for payment.

She will be formally sentenced on May 28.
