    OH - Cleveland Clinic nurse accused of murder-hire plot, 2013


    LAKEWOOD, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man hatched a plot to kill a woman he was in a home-ownership dispute with, authorities say, by approaching an emergency room patient at the renowned hospital where he worked as a nurse with the question, "Ever killed anyone?"

    No, the Cleveland Clinic patient replied, but I once shot a man.

    That was good enough, authorities say, for nurse Andrew Martin, 23, who allegedly tried to resolve the dispute by offering the patient $10,000 to kill the woman, who was never hurt.

    Martin, of the town of Bristolville about 50 miles east of Cleveland, has pleaded not guilty. His trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 7 in U.S. District Court in Cleveland. His attorney, Edward LaRue, said "there's much more to come" in the case...........more at link..........

    Former Cleveland Clinic nurse sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for failed murder plot
    A former Cleveland Clinic nurse will spend the next 12 years behind bars as punishment for a failed murder-for-hire scheme that targeted an 80-year-old Lakewood woman.

    Andrew Martin, 23, of Bristolville in Trumbull County, pleaded guilty in April to charges of conspiracy to commit murder and wire fraud, and illegally obtaining private health information from the Clinics computers. He admitted offering to pay $10,000 to a patient at the Clinic to kill the woman over the disputed ownership of a Lakewood home on Clifton Boulevard.
