All of the conversations between Merfeld and the ‘hitman’ took place in his vehicle and each discussion lasted about 11 minutes. The video was filmed over a two-day period, April 9th and 10th, as the pair were parked in front of a store.
Who snitched on Merfeld?
Allegedly Merfeld’s co-worker, Carlos Ramos, told MLive she had first tried to hire him as a hitman, offering him the same $50,000 fee for the job. Ramos in turn alerted police who then set up a series of meetings, which led to Merfeld’s eventual arrest.
Ironically, Merfeld’s husband asked the sentencing judge to NOT give his wife any jail time.
But what was the motive for the hit?
According to the D.A.’s office, Merfeld, who has pleaded guilty, wanted to take out her 27-year-old hubby because of a big fat life insurance policy of $400,000 that she would benefit from upon his demise.
Merfeld’s sentencing will take place on July 30.
