EAST ST. LOUIS, Il (KMOX)-A Collinsville woman who tried to hire someone to murder her ex-boyfriend, is going to prison for ten years.

Prosecutors say 32-year-old Christina Lynn Keck repeatedly asked a friend to find someone to kill the man, who lives in Texas.

The friend contacted police who set up a meeting with an undercover officer. The officer says Keck gave him $600, directions to the intended victim’s home and work and a description. The officer told Keck he was going to kill the man during a staged robbery.  He says Keck then told him, “I want him gone.”
