Meyer said investigators searched Allen’s cellphone and uncovered text messages between her and her daughter in which they "discussed murdering Marsha’s husband, Harold Allen, by poisoning" him in December 2022.
According to Meyer, officers confiscated additional electronic devices from Allen’s home to find further evidence. Authorities also interviewed and released Allen as they continued their investigation.
