MICHIGAN - A 21-year-old Michigan woman is behind bars after allegedly trying to have her husband killed.

The $50,000 murder-for-hire plot was caught on video when the woman met with an undercover officer to work out the details.

The woman tells the officer that murder is easier than divorce because she doesn't have to worry about family judgment or breaking her husband's heart.

The woman was arrested a short time later, and pleaded guilty to solicitation. She faces up to six years in prison, but her husband says he doesn't want her to spend any time locked up.
