Dalia Dippolito

Dalia Dippolito came home to find crime scene tape around the townhouse she shares with her husband of six months Michael Dippolito. The police broke the news to Dippolito, her husband is dead, the victim of a murder-for-hire plot. But actually, Michael Dippolito was not dead. He was alive, waiting to confront his new wife at police headquarters. It turned out Dalia Dippolito was behind the murder-for-hire plot. The crime scene was staged and the video was part of an undercover sting. Investigators say Dalia Dippolito wanted her husband dead, and hired a hit man she promised more than $6,000 to murder Michael Dippolito. But the hit man was an undercover cop. Investigators confronted her with the allegations and she was arrested and eventually convicted at trial on one count of solicitation to commit first-degree murder. On July 21, 2017 Dalia Dippolito was sentenced to 16 years in prison. Dippolito wants to be released on bond pending an appeal.
