MURDER-FOR-HIRE PLOT
W.Va. man accused of hiring 2 people to kill police lieutenant in Charleston

Reported by: Associated Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va.


West Virginia police are investigating a murder-for-hire plot against a police lieutenant in Charleston.

Media outlets report that Darrell Carter was charged Monday with solicitation to commit murder. He was arrested over the weekend in connection with the killing of a Charleston man.

Charleston Police Chief Brent Webster says Carter offered two people $15,000 to kill chief of detectives Lt. Steve Cooper.

Webster said Carter allegedly admitted to the murder-for-hire scheme while being questioned about the other shooting.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court, Carter said his motive for the solicitation of murder was he was dissatisfied with Cooper's handling of Carter's previous malicious wounding charge from March 2014.
