Police: Inmate Tried to Hire Hitman to Kill Family
News

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- A Gwinnett County man already in jail for child molestation faces new charges after authorities say he tried to hire someone to kill his family.

The Gwinnett County Police Department says Raymond Wesner's cellmate contacted a police investigator last week saying Wesner tried to hire him to kill Wesner's family.

Wesner has been in jail since his April arrest on child molestation charges and the cellmate said Wesner wanted his family killed so they couldn't testify against him.

An undercover investigator was put in the jail with Wesner and posed as a hit man. Police say Wesner offered the investigator $75,000 to kill his family before his hearing.

Wesner was charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of murder and three counts of attempted murder and threatening a witness.
