Lawyer charged with hiring hitman, indicted for poisoning wife
This story had to come together pretty quickly. We got to Collierville around 8:00 PM and were tasked with turning a story for 10:00. This attorney made news in the previous week for paying an undercover TBI agent to kill his wife. He thought the agent was a hitman, according to investigators. I bought some toothpaste to help illustrate new charges against him.. For putting poison in his wife's toothpaste. We regularly rely on MOS (man on the street) interviews for stories, especially when those involved in a case don't talk. In this case, I interviewed folks outside the Walgreens.
