A Massachusetts man who thought he was going to hire a hitman to murder his wife but actually spoke to an undercover federal agent has pleaded guilty to murder for hire.

Massimo Marenghi, 56, admitted Thursday that he planned to have his wife killed. He even went so far as to place cash bail with what he believed to be a hitman and advised them on the best way to avoid being seen at the would-be victim’s home. His plot was foiled by someone who initially appeared to be helping Marenghi, a whistleblower identified as a “confidential source” or “CS” in the probable cause affidavit. Marenghi had apparently raised “the issue of his wife’s murder” with CS, who later told authorities he had tried to dissuade Marenghi.

However, a series of text messages on January 1, 2021 convinced CS that Marenghi was serious. According to the affidavit, Marenghi told the source that he was having issues with his wife and that she had applied for a restraining order against him. At that time, Marenghi “again raised the issue of his wife’s murder,” the affidavit said. The whistleblower then apparently told Marenghi what it would take to get the job done.
