BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – A man accused of attempting to hire a Ku Klux Klan member to murder a man he believed raped his wife agreed to plead guilty to a murder for hire charge, according to a statement from the office of U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance.
Allen Wayne Densen Morgan, 29, of Munford, was formally charged in U.S. District Court with using and causing someone else to use interstate facilities and travel with the intent to commit a murder-for-hire.
Morgan was arrested in August after telling undercover officers, who he thought were Klansmen, he would pay them to kill a black neighbor who he believed raped his wife.
He offered a watch, a necklace and a gun as payment for the murder, according to the plea agreement.
In all, Morgan faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and $250,000.
