OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A 70-year-old northwest Oklahoma man has pleaded guilty to trying to hire his business partner in Kansas to kill a man in Oklahoma City.

Court records show Vernon Wayne Brock of Alva signed a plea agreement Wednesday admitting he tried to “conduct a murder for hire” plot to kill the unidentified man.

Prosecutors say Brock asked his business partner in vape shops to kill the boyfriend of a former employee who had ended a sexual relationship with Brock. The employee and the business partner are not identified in court documents.

Brock was arrested and charged in April after giving the business partner a $5,000 check during a meeting in Kansas.
