Tulsa, OK- Stephen Bowen, 55, is just a greedy old fart. After being married to the same woman for 17 years, he just couldn’t bear the thought of parting with his assets and half the parking lot striping business he owned in a divorce. So what did Stingy Steve do? He tried to hire a hit-man to kill his wife, of course. The details in this one are pretty telling about what kind of man Stephen is and where his priorities lie. If I were his wife, I’d be filing for divorce and buying a gun quicker than you can say O. J. in a white Bronco. It all began when Bowen tried to offer the dirty deed to one of his former employees.
The employee refused, but told Bowen he would find someone else for him that may take up the offer. Thankfully, the employee contacted the police who sent an undercover officer to play the role of the hired hit-man. Bowen met with the undercover officer at a truck stop to work out the dirty details and Bowen was very specific of how he wanted it all to go down. He wanted his wife, Sharon, murdered on Thursday between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. Bowen told the undercover officer that he wanted her shot to death with a gun equipped with a silencer. He said he would leave the back door of his home unlocked and wanted it to look like a home invasion robbery. Bowen said his wife would be asleep on her side or back and he wanted her to be shot in the chest and then he would be shot in the shoulder.
Bowen also said that he would report $3,700 cash as part of the loot taken from the home. He told the undercover officer to take all of his wife’s jewelry, including the rings on her fingers, but, most importantly, do not take the televisions. Heh. Can’t say the guy doesn’t have priorities. Bowen also drew a map to his house and a diagram of the lay-out and then gave the undercover officer a key to a Post Office box, where weekly payments of an unknown amount would be made. It was not until Bowen began driving towards his home to show the undercover officer where he lived that he was finally stopped and arrested. Bowen, thinking about his priorities again, asked the police to call his wife to come get his truck because he was worried about the work equipment in it. The officers did call her and that was when they informed her of her husband’s murderous scheme and her reaction was complete shock. Tulsa Police learned that another man had accepted the job to kill Bowen’s wife, but was arrested on a unrelated incident before he got the chance. Stephen Alan Bowen was charged with soliciting murder and his bond was set at $100,000 bond. Here’s hoping Sharon says ‘good riddance’, sits back on the couch with a cold one, and watches what she wants for a change on what is now one of her many televisions.
