A Louisiana man allegedly attempted to hire someone to kill a business partner and is now in jail.
Ahmad Slyyeh, 30, met with an individual to discuss the muder-for-hire plot, but the individual went to local authorities after the meeting and discussed Slyyeh's plan, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office told Fox 8.
Slyyeh owns a business in Slidell and wanted his business partner dead, according to the police department.
While police were looking for Slyyeh, he went to the St. Tammany Parish Correctional Center and turned himself in, where he was booked on Thursday and charged with solicitation for murder.
Slyyeh's bond is currently set at $225,000.
