Carmel Police have successful stopped a murder for hire plot, officials announced Wednesday.
Stephen Perry is behind bars after police said he tried to convince a co-worker to find a hit man to kill his estranged wife. Instead, that co-worker recorded the conversations he had with Perry.
According to court documents, Perry’s co-worker asked, “So what is knocking her out worth?”
Perry said “It’s gonna get me my money, without the divorce” and that he “just want[s] this to be over and done with… she’s dead and I’m free.”
That co-worker took the recording to Perry’s wife who then turned it over to police..
Perry is now charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
