THE WOODLANDS, TX (KTRK) -- A Montgomery County woman accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband appeared before a judge Tuesday, and her husband was there to see it.

Maria "Lulu" Sosa appeared for a preliminary hearing. Investigators say she tried to arrange for a hit man to murder her husband, Ramon Sosa. She didn't realize she was working with undercover officers.

Ramon even posed for a fake picture, showing his fake murder. He spoke exclusively with Eyewitness News last month. And he talked to us again Tuesday about seeing her in handcuffs.

"It's unfortunate that she has to do time," said Ramon Sosa. "It's going to be a long time behind bars. For six years, we slept next to each other and now she's going to be sleeping behind bars. It's going to be tough."

Ramon says he's just happy to still be alive. Lulu Sosa is charged with solicitation of capital murder.
