STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A 29-year-old Peruvian citizen has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly arranging the kidnapping and murder of the manager of a Stamford restaurant he failed to buy.

The indictment charging Larry Talledo-Torrejon with orchestrating a murder-for-hire scheme was handed down Thursday in Bridgeport.

According to court documents, Talledo-Torrejon told a man who owed him $5,000 to tail the restaurant’s manager to his home and kill him after the sale wasn’t finalized.

The man instead notified law enforcement and told Talledo-Torrejon that he kidnapped the manager and was holding him.

Talledo-Torrejon was arrested Dec. 8 after allegedly paying the man a $500 partial payment.

Talledo-Torrejon is in custody and faces up to 10 years in prison. His public defender did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
