CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) — A man charged with a murder conspiracy in Carmel has been sentenced.
Stephen Perry, 27, was sentenced to five years in prison for trying to have his wife killed. Police say Perry asked a co-worker to kill his estranged wife, but he was arrested before the crime could be committed.
Perry approached a co-worker at an instant oil change business and asked if he knew someone that would kill someone. He offered to pay him $15,000 and give him a money machine to make counterfeit money.
Court documents indicated Perry was trying to get out of a potentially messy divorce, when he was recorded on a cell phone making the offer.
Perry was arrested in January 2013.
