Woman Tries Hiring Hitman Who Ends Up Being a Cop:

Her co-worker was smart enough to refuse her demands.  Instead, he apparently told her that he would set her up with a “hitman” who could help her out.  Her co-worker definitely set her up… with an undercover cop!  Instead of an actual hitman showing up, an undercover cop met with Merfeld, listened to her plot which included the amount she way wiling to pay him, $54,000, and filmed the solicitation taking place.

Merfeld may face life in prison for solicitation of murder.  Her sentencing is set for July 30.
