‘Douche du Jour’: Crime Writer Nancy Gelber Hires Hit Man to Murder Husband

A published crime writer has been arrested in Texas for allegedly hiring a hit man to murder her estranged husband.

According to the Huffington Post, 53-year-old Nancy Mancuso Gelber was arrested in Brazos County, Texas and charged with solicitation to commit capital murder.

Authorities received a tip last week that Gelber was shopping around for a hit man to kill 54-year-old Joseph Richard Gelber, Jr. Although the couple was planning to divorce, they still lived together in Bryan, Texas. Gelber arranged to meet with an undercover officer pretending to be a hired assassin on December 7.

On April 29, Gelber hinted that all was not well at home with this Facebook post: “Thank you all for [your] support during my horrible surprise of coming home from Houston to find to my husband cheating … I wish the pain would go away and so could I from this hell I’m living in.”

Gelber has enjoyed a small measure of success as a published crime writer. Her 2010 debut novel, Temporary Amnesia, is a wild yarn featuring a jail-breaking convict who employs a crack squad of hookers to rob banks. It was published under the pseudonym Nancé J. Mancuso.
