Vermilion man on trial for allegedly hiring friend to kill his wife

Posted: Updated:
ABBEVILLE, LA -

Vermilion Parish man, Harlow Hutchinson, is charged with solicitation for murder after he allegedly tried to hire the best man at his wedding to kill his wife of 24 years.

Prosecutors say they have video and audio recordings of the two men plotting to kill Hutchinson's wife. They say Hutchinson wanted his wife dead so he could claim her assets and cash in on a $500,000 dollar insurance policy, so he could go live with a Ukrainian woman he had met online.

The defense claims Hutchinson was set-up because the best man was working as an informant for the police.They also claim that Hutchinson never paid his best man for the hit, and that they never set a date for the murder.

The jury was seated and opening arguments were on Tuesday.
