A Nebraska man is under arrest for paying an undercover officer to kill his wife.
The Nebraska State Patrol was contacted last week about Robert S. Honken, 37, of Aurora.
They were told that Honken wanted to hire someone to commit murder.
An undercover officer made contact with Honken, who paid him money upfront to do the job.
Another man also is in custody.
Investigators say Honken paid Derrick Shirley, 30, of Bradshaw, to be part of the murder plot as well.
Both men face a charge of Conspiracy to Commit Murder.
