Man admits role in foiled, cat-related murder plot
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois man faces up to 20 years in federal prison now that he's admitted his role in a foiled plot to abduct, extort and electrocute a wealthy man and to make it appear he'd been killed accidentally by his cat.
Brett Nash of Pontoon Beach pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony count of solicitation of a violent crime. Four other counts are to be dropped.
Federal investigators have identified the intended victim as a former corporate attorney who had long pursued a sexual relationship with Nash's wife.
