Police say four men arrested in northeast Ohio are linked to a murder plot in which a nurse tried to hire an emergency room patient as a hit man.
Lakewood police Capt. Ed Hassing tells the Northeast Ohio Media Group (http://bit.ly/16Qm8hy ) they were involved in conspiring or trying to burn down a house as part of the plot.
A former Cleveland Clinic nurse, Andrew Martin, admitted orchestrating the plot after the patient tipped off police. Martin was sentenced to 12 years in prison.
Authorities said Martin offered a patient $10,000 to kill a woman in a dispute over ownership of her deceased brother's home.
