ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man has been indicted by a grand jury on charges he hired hit man who helped police arrest him.

The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports 39-year-old Seljami Idrizi, of Grafton, was indicted Thursday in Lorain County on conspiracy to commit aggravated murder and other charges.

North Ridgeville police say Idrizi was arrested in September after he made the final payment on a $5,000 contract to a hired killer who was cooperating with police. Police, with the help of a makeup artist, took a photo of the 43-year-old intended victim with a fake bullet wound to the head to show he’d been murdered.

Police haven’t said why Idrizi wanted the man dead.

Idrizi’s attorney declined to comment on Friday.
