Hopkinsville Police arrested a local man early this morning accused of planning to murder a female, allegedly going as far as offering cash for someone to bring her to him.
The arrest warrant for 28-year old Steven Mayton of Hopkinsville says Mayton allegedly made several threats to different people over the last several weeks. One witness recorded a conversation when Mayton allegedly detailed plans on how he would torture, maim and kill the female.
He also allegedly offered one thousand dollars cash if the person would find the would-be victim and bring her to him to be murdered. Mayton allegedly told the witness to arrange a time and place and he would meet her there.
Mayton was arrested at the Calvin Manor Apartments just after 3 this morning.
