FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - A Virginia home remodeling contractor who tried to have a client killed has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

The Washington Post reports that contractor Daniel W. Jamison was sentenced last week after trying to hire an undercover police officer as a hit man.

Jamison met with the officer to discuss the murder after the homeowner had Jamison charged with construction fraud for not completing a $41,000 remodeling job.

Jamison argued that he had not been serious when talking to the undercover officer, but Fairfax Circuit Court Judge Michael F. Devine said he did not “believe a word of” Jamison’s story.
