The wife of former Apple UK boss Jon Molyneux today pleaded guilty to soliciting to murder her husband.

Shelley Molyneux, 41, hired a hitman to kill Molyneux for his insurance money. Fortunately for her husband, the 'hitman' was an undercover journalist who told the police.

At the time of the planned hit, Molyneux was the £175,000 a year chief executive of Scoot, the online directory,. At its peak, his shareholding in the company was worth £1m. But Scoot got into financial difficulties, the shares turned to dust, and the Molyneux's marriage collapsed. Bitter divorce proceedings ensued, reports the Evening Standard's Paul Cheston, who was at the Old Bailey today. Very bitter.

Mrs. Molyneux will be sentenced next month. ®
