Diane Hart, 45, and Vickie Brill, 50, both of Ravenna, were arraigned in a Muskegon court on solicitation to murder charges. A judge set $100,000 bond for each and said they'll get court-appointed lawyers.
A court hearing is set for Nov. 27.
Authorities said Hart's husband told police he learned from a relative about plans to kill him.
State police said the women met with an undercover officer in a Norton Shores parking lot on Wednesday. It was there that investigators say an agreement was reached. Prosecutors said $5,000 was to be paid for the killing, with jewelry used as a down payment.
