Nampa man tried to hire person to kill ex-girlfriend, police say

NAMPA, Idaho (KBOI) -- A 20-year-old Nampa man has been busted after he allegedly offered to pay someone to kill an ex-girlfriend, police say.

Detectives say they've arrested Kenneth O'Brien.

NPD says it was contacted by a person who was approached by O'Brien over the past six weeks to kill his former girlfriend. Detectives say O'Brien offered money, the location of his ex, and offered up a weapon to commit the crime.

The weapon, police say, was later found at his home.

O'Brien has been booked for criminal solicitation of a murder and booked into the Ada County Jail over the weekend. He's being held on a $50,000 bond.
