Woman awaiting murder-for-hire trial wants more freedom

Associated Press logo Associated Press 1/4/2017

BOYTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman wants more freedom as she awaits a third trial on a 2009 murder-for-hire charge, following a mistrial last month.

The Sun-Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/2i9AKoS) Dalia Dippolito's attorneys asked a judge this week that she be removed from house arrest.

Arguing this week that the 34-year-old Dippolito is "neither a danger to the community nor a flight risk," the defense is asking Circuit Judge Glenn Kelley to end Dippolito's 24-hour curfew, confinement at her mother's house and constant tracking by law enforcement.

But ex-husband Michael Dippolito wants her to be kept under close watch since she is accused of trying to have him killed by a hit man, who turned out to be an undercover Boynton Beach police officer.

The case gained national attention after millions saw videos of her trying to hire the hit man on the television show "Cops" and online.
