MUSKEGON, Mi (My TV 20 News at 10) - A western Michigan woman is caught on tape, trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband. She told the man she wanted her husband dead because "it was easier than divorcing him," and she asked the hit man to kill him outside, because it would be too messy inside the house. But that "hit man" turned out to be an undercover police officer. Julia Merfield, 21, pleaded guilty to soliciting murder, and will be sentenced later this month.
