New details in murder for hire plot

Posted: Updated:

We should learn more today about a murder for hire plot in Vermont.

Police say 41 year old Mark Staake and 23 year old Tanner Ruane traveled from New Mexico to St. Albans, hired by a jailed Vermont murderer, to kill two other people. But the pair got lost at the Highgate border crossing and Staake was arrested for violating his probation. Police say Ruane made it to St. Albans where he waited for a money transfer at a supermarket.

He was arrested later driving through New York.

Police say they were sent here by Dana Martin, who is behind bars for the murder and rape of a 15 year old girl in Barre more than a decade ago.

Martin later told police about the plot.
