MIDLAND - A Midland man charged in a murder for hire plot is back in Midland.

NewsWest 9 told you last week about 26-year-old Jonathan Rendon.

Investigators say he planned to hire people to help him kidnap, murder and dispose of his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend.

After enough evidence was gathered, Midland Police with the help of U.S. Marshals tracked Rendon down in Lubbock and arrested him.

Rendon sat in Lubbock jail for a little over a week before being extradited back to Midland.

He is being held without bond.
