MUSKEGON (WKZO) -- A woman from New Jersey has pleaded guilty to solicitation to murder after she was caught on camera plotting to kill her husband.

Prosecutors this week released the video, which shows 21-year-old Julie Merfeld meeting with a man she believed was a killer for hire.  The man was actually an undercover cop.  In the video, Merfeld states that she wants her husband dead because "it was easier than divorcing him."

Merfeld and her husband are from Keyport, New Jersey.
