Video: [Full] Woman caught on camera telling ‘hitman’ she wanted husband dead as its ‘easier than divorcing him’

A woman has been caught on video telling a police officer posing as a hitman that she wanted her husband dead because it was easier than divorcing him. In the clip Julia Charlene Merfeld, of Michigan in the United States, calmly tells the detective that the “hit” must happen on a Thursday and couldn’t take place at the couple’s family home as it would be too messy. When the 20-year-old was asked why she wanted her husband killed, she told the detective that it would mean she wouldn’t have to worry about “breaking his heart”, or any negative family reaction to their separation. Describing the deteriorating relationship with her 27-year-old spouse, Merfeld says: “When I first decided to do this … it’s not that we weren’t getting along… But terrible as it sounds, it was easier than divorcing him”.
