LOVINGTON, N.M. - It must have been a troubled marriage.

A Lovington man is accused of hiring a hit man to kill his first wife.

It was 29-year-old Justin Davis' second wife who told on him.

She told police she had a recording of Davis saying he gave someone $500 to murder his first wife.

She also claims she saw Davis give the money and a rifle to the hit man about five years ago but the hit man never went through with it.
