A former beauty queen has been arrested after allegedly plotting with two others, including her lover, to kill her estranged husband, according to authorities.

In late July, 36-year-old Lindsay Shiver, 28-year-old Terrance Bethel and 29-year-old Faron Newbold were arrested after police investigating a crime at a bar in Guana Cay found WhatsApp messages that allegedly outlined a plan to kill Robert Shiver, Lindsay’s husband, according to Bahamas Court News.

Authorities said Bethel is reportedly the man with whom Lindsay was allegedly having an affair with.

On July 16, Lindsay, Bethel and Newbold were together at Abaco when they agreed to commit an offense, “namely the murder of [Robert] Shiver,” the Thomasville Times-Enterprise reported.

The Shivers own a home in the Bahamas, which is how Lindsay reportedly struck up a relationship with Bethel. Once Robert learned of the affair, he filed for divorce.

Robert cited his wife’s “adulterous conduct” as grounds for separation, CNN reported. In her divorce filing, Lindsay said she “incurred debt beyond her means to pay” and requested her husband pay.

Lindsay was given $100,000 cash bail. Bethel and Newbold were given $20,000 cash bail, which the Bahamas Court News reported that Robert Shiver bailed all three of them out of jail on Aug. 1.

She is required to wear an ankle monitor and ordered to stay in the Bahamas until her court date on Oct. 5, officials said.

Lindsay won Miss Houston County in 2005 and came in second place at the National Peanut Festival pageant, WDHN-TV reported.

Robert played football at Auburn University in Alabama and was on the Atlanta Falcons roster for a short period of time, authorities said. He has reportedly returned to his home in Thomasville.
