NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa — A North Liberty man faces three counts of attempt to commit murder after police say he tried to hire someone to kill three people.
Investigators say 36-year-old Justin DeWitt wanted three people dead–an Iowa Department of Public Safety special agent, an adult man, and an adult woman.
The murder-for-hire scheme happened while DeWitt was in jail, facing four separate attempt to commit murder charges.
A preliminary hearing on these most recent charges is set for January 9th.
DeWitt remains in jail.
