An Aiken county woman has been sentenced in federal court to seven years, three months in prison in a murder for hire plot. 42 year old Salley native Judy Dickson was sentenced to 87 months behind bars for hiring a man to murder her estranged husband and son last year. In May 2009. Dickson agreed to pay her boyfriend David Hutto to set on fire the Shallotte, North Carolina home of her estranged husband Raymond Dickson and his adult son Ryan Dickson while the two slept inside. Dickson told Hutto that she was concerned about her divorce settlement and wanted to collect the proceeds from the elder Dickson’s life insurance policy. Hutto told Judy Dickson he would carry out the plan, but warned Raymond Dickson instead. Hutto then taped phones calls he made to his girlfriend in which they discussed plans to kill the Dicksons by stuffing pine straw in the crawl space of their home and igniting it with gasoline. Hutto turned over the tapes to the FBI.
