An Israeli woman living Ponca City, oklahoma was charged with using the internet to solicit murder after authorities found out that she tried to pay someone to Kill her ex-husband. She put up an advertisement on Craigslist and offered to pay $4,000 to whoever could kill her former partner.

The woman, identified as Danielle Dana Layman, started with her plan through trying to hire someone from the Craigslist ad. The Oklahoman newspaper reported that she creatively used the words “10-day gig overseas” to see if anyone would want to do the job of killing her husband without arousing suspicion.

What the Craigslist ad said

Layman also said that she was specifically looking for a discrete actor for the supposed 10-day gig.

She further enticed applicants by saying that the pay was competitive, Layman looked for a person who was creative, friendly, outgoing and had a positive personality. She also hoped that the applicant would be bold and brave. Layman continued to say that she preferred someone who has “experience in acting, magic shows, and casino dealing," the affidavit revealed.

How Layman got caught

The advertisement generated interest and a person finally responded. When that individual talked to Layman, who did not use her real name but identified herself as Samantha Dowry, she offered him or her $4,000 in cash on top of the $1,000 for the expenses of the planned travel to Israel.

Layman also told the unidentified individual that the job was to kill her ex-husband. She talked about the plan when they met for the first time at a coffee shop. Layman used a PowerPoint presentation to demonstrate her plan. She instructed the person to hire her former husband as a taxi driver then offer him coffee every morning that had poison in it for the next 10 days.
