A woman was arrested in Southern California for allegedly attempting to hire someone to murder her estranged spouse and dispose of his corpse, according to authorities.

Tatyana Remley, age 42, was apprehended on August 2 during a covert operation conducted by undercover detectives with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, according to a news release from the agency. Remley allegedly provided detectives with information detailing her desire to have her spouse, Mark Remley, murdered and his corpse disposed of. 

Remley allegedly offered $2 million to have her spouse murdered, according to the CBS affiliate KFMB-TV.

The station reported that prior to her arrest, Remley lead a lavish lifestyle in Del Mar, approximately 20 miles north of San Diego, complete with multimillion-dollar homes and treasured horses.

Remley allegedly brought three firearms and cash as “down payment” for the homicide when she met with undercover detectives, according to the sheriff’s office. Remley was taken into custody and accused with soliciting homicide.

KFMB-TV reported that Remley was arrested after the North Coastal Sheriff’s Station investigated information that she was attempting to hire someone to murder her spouse.

According to court documents obtained by the station, Remley and her spouse, who had been married since March 2011, divorced in May. In a July court filing, Remley requested $15,000 per month in spousal support as part of their divorce.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department began its investigation of Remley on July 3, one day after deputies responded to a fire at her residence on July 2. Remley, who was in possession of three firearms and ammunition, was detained for gun-related offenses and subsequently released, according to the sheriff’s department. The fire’s origin is still under investigation. 

A month later, she was lodged into the Vista Detention Facility on charges of solicitation of homicide and gun-related offenses.

Remley’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 16.

Tatyana and Mark Remley made headlines in 2012 when their horse acrobatic show ”Valitar” abruptly closed, according to KFMB-TV. The station reported that performers claimed they were not paid, and ticket holders were left in the dark for a week. The Remleys told KFMB-TV at the time that low ticket sales led to the cancellation of the performance.
