Wife Charged with Trying to Hire Hit Man to Testify

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A woman whose arrest in connection with a contract killing plot was featured on the television show “Cops” is expected to testify under oath for the first time.

Dalia Dippolito is expected to testify at a Palm Beach County, Florida, court Tuesday during a pretrial hearing. The 33-year-old Dippolito is facing a May retrial on 2009 charges that she tried to hire a hit man to kill her husband, convicted conman Michael Dippolito. She has pleaded not guilty.

Dalia Dippolito is expected to testify that a former lover threatened her with a gun and pressured her to speak to the hit man who was actually an undercover police officer.

The case gained national notoriety because “Cops” happened to be filming with the Boynton Beach police.
