ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Portales man has pleaded guilty to plotting to have his wife killed.

The U.S. Attorney’s office in Albuquerque says Cody Guss pleaded guilty Friday to an indictment that charged him with using a telephone in interstate commerce to commission a murder-for-hire.

According to court filings, between Feb. 27 and March 26, Curry negotiated with an undercover Amarillo, Texas, police officer to have his wife killed for $5,000. Prosecutors say he met the officer in Clovis, gave him a key and made arrangements for the officer to enter his home when his wife was alone.

Guss has been in federal custody since his arrest. He faces a maximum 10 ten years in prison.
