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.
