An Amarillo man implicated in a murder-for-hire plot is back behind bars tonight.

Billy Ivy, Jr. was arrested for a fourth time today.

According to the Amarillo Police Department, Ivy is charged with two counts of attempted capital murder.

Earlier this week, the APD Special Crimes Unit started investigating a report that an individual was attempting to hire someone to murder people.

This afternoon, the Special Crimes Unit conducted an undercover operation as part of their investigation.

We are told the suspect was seen in a vehicle in the 7200 block of S. Georgia.

Investigators determined that he was making cell phone calls to an undercover officer in Potter County.

Investigators also told us they were able to determine that in the calls, the suspect offered money to the undercover officer to murder more than one person.

Police say at about 3:30 p.m., APD SWAT and Narcotics officers assisting in the operation and took the suspect, Billy Glenn Ivy Jr., 49, into custody.

Ivy was taken to the Potter County Detention Center and booked on two counts of attempted capital murder for remuneration.

The Special Crimes Unit is continuing their investigation.

These charges are similar to another one he is facing in Randall County, in which Ivy is accused of hiring someone to kill his wife’s alleged boyfriend.

These new charges do not specify whether Ivy was allegedly involved in trying to kill someone, or if it is another murder-for-hire case.

Ivy was released in July after spending two months behind bars on arson charges.

He has been implicated in last year’s murder of Charlesetta Telford, and the disappearance of Nikki Moore.

He has not been charged in either of those cases.

Ivy remains in the Potter County Jail tonight.
