Jefferson Co Authorities Intercept Contract Killing Attempt
06/03/2013

Herrig

(KAIR) -- A 42-year-old Jefferson County woman is in jail, following her arrest in connection with what authorities are calling an attempted contract killing. 

Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig says a fast moving investigation led to the arrest of  Rebecca Burch who was allegedly wanting her ex-boyfriend killed.  

Herrig says Burch was taken into custody Friday evening on a felony charge of solicitatation of first degree murder.

This comes after an officer from another agency posed as a potential contract killer and Burch then revealed her believed intentions to the officer. 

Herrig says a motive behind the alleged contracting attempt is currently unclear.

Burch remains in the Jefferson County Jail on 150 thousand dollars bond.
