A shocking video shows a former New Jersey woman plotting to hire a hitman to kill her husband.

Julia Merfeld, who now lives in Michigan, wanted her husband killed and she wasn’t shy when it came to setting up the hit, police said.  But it was all caught on camera.

The 21-year-old Merfeld, who had moved from Keyport, N.J. to Muskegon, Mich.,  plotted to have her husband killed back in April.  She met twice with man whom she thought was a hitman. He asked for specifics.
