Man Hires Hit Man For Daughter

A Tri-State man is accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill his pregnant ex-wife and their two-year-old daughter.

The Clinton County sheriff's department says Jesse Pesta offered five thousand dollars to an undercover deputy to kill his wife. Then he allegedly negotiated a price to kill his daughter because he was tired of paying child support.

Pesta,23, is charged with three-counts of conspiracy to commit murder.
