AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - A Potter County grand jury indicted Billy Glenn Ivy Jr. on Thursday on two counts of paying and promising to pay men to kill two others.

Ivy, who lives near Adrian, is also charged with other felonies including paying people to set a house on fire.

He is in the Randall County Jail because a judge revoked his release on a federal charge of owning three unregistered silencers for rifles. He pleaded guilty to the charge and is waiting for sentencing to up to 10 years in prison.

The indictment says the man he promised in early September to pay to do the killing is an undercover policeman. It also says he gave money to another man to kill two intended victims, and that amounts to "more than mere preparation."
