In the video above, Julia Merfeld offers a hitman $50,000 to kill her husband because, she says, it’s easier than a divorce. But the hitman turned out to be an undercover Michigan police officer who got the whole thing on tape for the Muskegon County Prosecutor’s Office.

The 21-year-old Muskegon woman started talking about wanting her husband dead to co-worker Carlos Ramons, according to local ABC affiliate WZZM. At first he considered it only a joke but when she continued to bring it up, he decided to go to the police.

Merfled pled guilty to solicitation of murder in June and is set to be sentenced on July 30th, with a minimum of six years, according to WOOD TV 8 in Michigan.

This deserves life in prison. She's a psychopath with no regards for human life. Six year minimum sentence? This is practically attempted murder. What a disgrace of a human being. Wow.

She needs to go to remedial school for stupid people, not jail..

She's a real keeper, not to mention her taste in fashion and the way she fills out those pink sweats. 

She'll be a hot item on Match.com once she does her time!!

What a pig of a woman.  She is willing to actually take the very LIFE of her husband, who has relatives who love him dearly.  She is willing to have them go through the devastation of losing him and she cares nothing about their feelings or the aftermath of the actual KILLING of her husband.  How cold.  How callous.  She is willing to cause all that pain for her convenience?  She is a pig and deserves to die in prison.

@kateh Well, there have been other cases like this.  What I think sets HER apart is her upbeat personality.  If I met her somewhere I would probably think of her as a potential friend.  She's pleasant, does not seem to be stupid, no ego problems evident.  She's like the girl next door.  A neighbor.

@cjh2nd @kateh Of course I have 'heard of a husband or wife wanting to kill the other.'  And it's usually the Christians doing the killing when their stupid fantasies don't play out in real life.  My comment still stands.  She is a pig.  She has no empathy.  WTF is YOUR problem?  Can't find a hit-man?

A divorce would have been far cheaper both in jail time and money.
