A Nevada company has sued its CFO, John Franklin Howard, for stealing company money that it says Howard used to pay a man to murder his wife, according to Courthouse News. Howard's wife, Nancy Howard, was shot in the eye at their home in Carrolton, Texas, on Aug. 18, but survived the shooting. Her husband was arrested on Aug. 24 and charged with paying $85,000 to have his wife killed.

The lawsuit filed by Raley Holdings against Howard and JPMorgan Chase alleges that Howard wired millions of dollars out of Raley Holdings accounts and into JPMorgan accounts in his name.
