Man Sentenced in Murder-For-Hire Plot

An Amarillo man will spend the next 10 years behind bars in federal prison for trying to hire someone to kill his ex-wife. 

56 year old Charles Lee Young was sentenced in federal court Friday afternoon for the crime he pleaded guilty to in August of 2007.

The FBI used an undercover informant to record the deal on audio tape.  Young is not eligible for parole and must pay a $1,000 dollar fine.
