Murder for Hire Plot Busted

A Princeton couple faces felony charges in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme. State police say 31-year-old Jason Gardner met with an undercover ATF agent posing as a hit-man in the Walmart parking lot in Princeton Sunday night. Gardner paid the undercover officer $900 and allegedly agreed to pay an additional $1,100 to kill his ex-wife. Gardner was arrested without incident. Officers later arrested his current wife, Pamela Gardner. Police say Gardner was involved in an child custody battle with his ex-wife.
