DALLAS (AP) — Prosecutors say four people are charged in Texas with plotting to kill a Drug Enforcement Administration agent.
U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox’s office in Dallas said Wednesday that four people were indicted by a federal grand jury for conspiracy to use interstate commerce in the commission of murder-for-hire.
Prosecutors say a man in the Johnson County Jail on a methamphetamine charge is accused of offering $20,000 to have the DEA agent assigned to his case killed.
The man’s girlfriend, sister and co-defendant in the drug case also were also indicted.
The unidentified agent wasn’t harmed.
