MUSKEGON, MI (WKZO) -- Muskegon police got a tip that a local woman was shopping for a hit-man Monday and so they immediately set up a sting. Posing as a killer for hire, a detective contacted the woman and began negotiations. They say Julie Merfeld wanted her husband dead because she wanted to collect on his life insurance policy. They aren’t saying yet how much she was willing to pay to have him killed. She has been charged for attempted murder.
The Judge set bond at half a million dollars.
