Local Nurse Indicted in Murder-for-Hire Plot
LAKEWOOD, Ohio — A local emergency room nurse has been indicted in a murder-for-hire plot.
Police say Andrew Martin, 23, of Bristolville, Ohio is charged with one count of use of an interstate commerce facility in the commission for murder-for-hire. The indictment against him alleges on November 5, Martin used a telephone with the intention that a murder be committed.
He was arrested November 9 while working at the Cleveland Clinic.
