LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state Attorney General’s office criminal division is investigating allegations of a murder-for-hire plot involving a food service worker at an Upper Peninsula prison.

Attorney General Bill Schuette says Monday that his team is reviewing evidence and materials as part of an independent probe.

A request for the investigation was made by the state police post in Sault Ste. Marie.

State police have said that a Kinross Correctional Facility inmate complained in July that a food-service worker approached him about arranging to kill an inmate held at another facility. The worker is banned from prison property.

Kinross is in Chippewa County, south of Sault Ste. Marie.

Michigan contracts with Philadelphia-based Aramark for prison food service. Aramark has said it wouldn’t comment on an active police investigation.
