A Broward County man could spend the next decade being bars after pleading guilty to hiring a man to murder the new lover of his ex-girlfriend.
Ryan Hadeed, 43, entered the plea in federal court and will be sentenced on October 26th.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of Florida, the Pembroke Pines resident mailed a letter to the intended hitman requesting the murder to take place.
“I need someone eliminated. I've been told you can arrange that. $10,000 All in cash and upfront. Person located in Tampa," the September 2021 letter said.
