2 men indicted in Ohio murder-for-hire plot

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio grand jury has indicted two men in an alleged murder-for-hire plot targeting the ex-wife of one of the suspects.

A prosecutor said Wednesday that the Franklin County grand jury in Columbus charged 59-year-old Daniel Lytle with conspiracy to commit aggravated murder and related crimes.

He is accused of conspiring with 26-year-old Brad Fickenworth over several months to kill his 43-year-old ex-wife Tammy Lytle. Fickenworth also was indicted on a charge of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/UClT3o ) reports that Daniel Lytle allegedly recruited Fickenworth to hire a third person to kill his ex-wife.

Their attorney information wasn't immediately available.
