BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore man has been sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison for his part in a murder-for-hire plot involving an undercover agent.

The Maryland U.S. Attorney’s Office says Antonio McKiver, 47, was sentenced Thursday. According to a plea agreement, in 2012 McKiver told a confidential informant that he was willing to be paid in cash and with drugs to carry out a murder.

McKiver met with an undercover FBI agent and agreed to commit a murder for $15,000 and a kilogram of drugs. McKiver asked the undercover agent to provide the gun. He was arrested in the parking lot of a hotel in Baltimore County after accepting heroin, $5,000 and a pistol from the undercover agent.
