JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - We're getting a first look at footage undercover police took of a 70-year-old woman who wanted to pay a hitman $5,000 to kill her daughter-in-law.
The State Attorney's Office only allowed ten seconds of the video to be released but it shows police recording Diana Costarakis waiting in her car at a Home Depot for the undercover officer.
New police reports show Costarakis asked her mechanic to help her find a hitman and even had him use code and tell her that he found someone to "fix her car" when he'd found a hitman. Costarakis' daughter-in-law Angela shared her utter shock back in October.
"I guess...if I was out of the way then she could just have her son and her granddaughter."
Police say when the undercover officer asked Costarakis if she wanted him to kill her daughter-in-law, she replied "If you don't, I will." She allegedly also told the officer he could take the diamond jewelry from Angela's body once she was dead to help cover the fee for the hit.
Costarakis is charged with criminal conspiracy and criminal solicitation.
