Herrin said the victim played Deputy Aaron Coller several recordings from his answering machine of his ex-wife, Elizabeth “Betty” Langdon, requesting that he put her on the books as an employee and pay her $25 an hour.

Langdon, 58, told him that if he didn’t comply with her requests by July 25 then she would report him to the IRS for his “nefarious” business practices, Herrin said.

Deputies obtained a warrant for Langdon’s arrest and she was taken into custody on Tuesday on an extortion charge.
