BAKER CITY, Ore. (AP) - A Baker City woman who tried to hire someone to kill her ex-boyfriend has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

The Baker City Herald reports (https://is.gd/SLmbPM) that 24-year-old Emily Munsell pleaded guilty last week to criminal conspiracy and solicitation to commit murder.

Munsell was arrested in December after a police detective pretended to be a hit man. Police said Munsell offered to pay the detective to kill her ex-boyfriend, against whom Munsell had a restraining order.

A report from the detective says Munsell offered $80 as a down payment, and $1,000 after she got her income tax refund.

Police became involved after Munsell’s cousin reported that Munsell had approached him about making her ex-boyfriend “disappear.”
