COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio grand jury has indicted two men in an alleged murder-for-hire plot targeting the ex-wife of one of the suspects.
A prosecutor said Wednesday that the Franklin County grand jury in Columbus charged 59-year-old Daniel Lytle with conspiracy to commit aggravated murder and related crimes.
He is accused of conspiring with 26-year-old Brad Fickenworth over several months to kill his 43-year-old ex-wife Tammy Lytle. Fickenworth also was indicted on a charge of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that Daniel Lytle allegedly recruited Fickenworth to hire a third person to kill his ex-wife.
Their attorney information wasn't immediately available.
