Man tried to find hitman to kill his wife: Troopers

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Houston man is facing charges after he allegedly tried to find someone to kill his wife.

While there are still very few details, court documents say Ryan Lane told a friend last week that he wanted his wife killed.

State troopers intervened, and documents say an undercover officer approached the 47-year-old husband with an offer to do the job.

Lane was arrested March 20 after he allegedly arranged a meeting with the undercover officer.

He is charged with solicitation of capital murder.
