BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — There’s new information about a chilling murder-for-hire plot in Baltimore County.

Ron Matz has more about what the accused ring leader is now saying about the plot.

Police say Karla Porter confessed to taking part in the plot that led to her husband’s death.  That’s according to WJZ’s media partner, The Baltimore Sun, which says the woman discussed the plan in a taped interview with police detectives.

But while Porter admits she wanted a “hit” on her husband, she says she did not intend for him to die.

Karla Porter’s husband, Ray Porter, was shot in front of her last year at their Hess station in Towson. At the time, she claimed an African-America man shot him during a robbery gone bad.

Karla Porter is charged with first-degree murder.  Prosecutors say they plan to seek the death penalty for her and the alleged triggerman.
