Muskegon Woman to be Sentenced Today

The Muskegon woman who hired a hitman to kill her husband will be sentenced today. 

21-year-old Julia Merfeld is facing life in prison after pleading guilty to solicitation of murder.  Merfeld made plans with an undercover cop, posing as a hitman, in April to kill her husband claiming it was easier than divorcing him. Police also say she wanted her 27-year-old husband's $400,000 life insurance policy.
