Muskegon County resident Julia Merfeld hired a Michigan State police detective disguised as a hit man to have her husband murdered.
Two meetings between the two were caught on hidden camera and captured this shocking footage.
Merfeld was arrested after the second meeting with the fake hit man, both conversations occurring in his vehicle and lasting about 11 minutes.
21-year-old Merfeld told the cop she thought was a hit-man, “When I first decided to do this…its not that we weren’t getting along. But…terrible as it sounds, it was easier than divorcing him.”
Authorities attribute another motive: her 27-year-old husband’s $400,000 life insurance policy. Merfeld planned to use some of the life insurance money to pay the hit man’s fee, she told him.
In this astonishing footage, the young wife discusses possible dates for the killing in between laughs and checking her calendar on her cell phone.
