A wealthy investor was held without bond Friday on suspicion of plotting his wife’s murder after police said an informant tape-recorded him saying he wanted her throat slit.

An FBI agent played the tape Thursday at a bond hearing in federal court in Covington, Ky., in which he said Alfred Schuholz, 66, offered $5,000 to an unidentified informant to murder his second wife, Norma, and her sister.

In a pair of unsolved 1981 killings, Schuholz’s first wife, Marie, 54, and a female roommate had their throats cut in an apartment in the Cincinnati suburb of Sharonville.
