Police: Estranged Wife Charged in Former FBI Agent's Death

The estranged wife of a former FBI agent has been charged with his death, Laurel police announced Monday. 

Anne Reed Allen was arrested Friday and charged with the death of her estranged husband, Scott Alan Horn, police said.

On March 16, Horn was found unresponsive in the yard of a home on Patuxent Road. Horn, who was a retired special agent with the FBI, had major trauma to his upper body.  

Allen was charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and the use of a handgun in a crime of violence. She is being held without bond. 

Her attorney, Andrew Jezic, disputes the police allegations, saying the couple were not estranged and were working on their marriage. He said the two were living together in the Patuxent Road home.

Jezic said police have no tangible evidence or confession from Allen. He said his client had no motive to kill her husband.
