Grandma Arrested for Hiring Hitman to Kill Daughter-In-Law

A 70-year-old Florida grandmother is accused of hiring a hitman to murder her daughter-in-law. Diana Reaves Costarakis reportedly told an undercover agent that if he didn’t kill the woman, she would do it herself.

Florida police say that Costarakis claims her son’s wife is a drunk who was planning on leaving him and taking their child to Colorado. Angela Costarakis denies those allegations and said she had no idea her mother-in-law had it out for her. About three weeks ago, Angela said her mom-in-law gave her a hug and told her, “I’m so glad we’re great friends.”

Costarakis supposedly offered the undercover cop a $5,000 bounty. She was charged with criminal solicitation for conspiring with the officer at a Home Depot. Costarakis paid him $1,500 in cash and allegedly said he could take the jewelry off of the woman’s dead body for the rest of the bounty.
