Wendy Moore, girlfriend of Chris Latham and his former assistant at Bank of America, has also been charged in the alleged conspiracy to kill Latham’s estranged wife.

The case began generating tawdry headlines in April, when four suspects were arrested.

One was blond Wendy Moore, his live-in girlfriend and former Bank of America assistant.

He pleaded not guilty last week to the federal charges.

They allege Latham conspired to use interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire, use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire and possession of a firearm in the furtherance of a crime of violence.

The first two charges each carry a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison and the third charge carries a mandatory consecutive sentence of five years.
