NEW CITY - A Rockland County woman pleaded not guilty Friday to charges that she plotted to kill her boyfriend's wife.

Kelly Gribeluk and her podiatrist boyfriend, Dr. Ira Bernstein, have been indicted on charges they conspired to hire a hit man to kill Bernstein's estranged wife, Susan. Gribeluk's lawyer, Barry Weiss, entered a not guilty plea for her during her brief arraignment.

According to indictments returned by the grand jury, she and Bernstein were willing to pay $100,000 to have someone murder Susan. Assistant District Attorney Richard Moran said the plan was to have someone hit Susan with a car and make it look like an accident.

Gribeluk is being held at the Rockland County Jail on $600,000 bail, where she has been held since her arrest earlier this month. Her attorney's request for a bail reduction was denied. The judge also rejected a request by the prosecution to up the bail to $1 million.

Bernstein remains free on bail and is due in court June 14.

If convicted, the two could face up to 25 years in prison.
