Hodges man faces charges in murder-for-hire investigation

Indictment: Upstate man wanted to hire killer to hang neighbor, put flaming cross in yard

A SC man, Brandon Lecroy, 25, is facing federal charges after plotting to kill his black neighbor, reports Post and Courier News.

The maximum penalty he could face is 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

A Lexington County deputy working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation submitted an affidavit in a U.S. District Court that alleges Lecroy contacted a confidential source in the Federal Bureau of Investigation on March 19 seeking help in killing his black neighbor.

Manchester City set new Premier League goals record
Guardiola, who sanctioned Toure's 2010 move to City while in charge of Barca, expects a fond farewell for the 34-year-old. That is held by Manchester United who won the league in 1999/2000 by 18 points, and are now 20 behind City.

After the agent agreed to that price, Lecroy asked him to hang his neighbor from a tree and place a "flaming cross" in the front yard.

"$500 and he's a ghost", he reportedly told the undercover agent during a phone call. The mercenary actually was an undercover agent, and now 25-year-old racist LeCroy Brandon (Brandon Lecroy) has received criminal charges of attempted murder. He also texted the agent a picture of the neighbor, who was identified in court documents only as "FJ". He told the undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent that he wanted a 9mm ghost gun-which would be untraceable. He had allegedly paid $100 as a downpayment for his neighbor's murder.

He also mentioned he might want to have more people killed later if the hitman could get the first job done, an affidavit said. Authorities said Lecroy even advised the agent of the best time to murder his neighbor and offered money for future murders.

Warriors, Rockets on course for West Finals
Anthony Davis is averaging 29.6 points and 12.8 rebounds while Jrue Holiday is averaging 23.3 points and 5.8 assists. The Golden State Warriors overpowered the New Orleans Pelicans Sunday, finishing with a 118-92 Game 4 victory.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in SC announced Leroy's federal jury indictment this past Tuesday.

A message left for Lecroy's attorney, Federal Public Defender Erica Marie Soderdahl, was not immediately answered.

A magistrate judge on April 10 ordered a psychiatric or psychological evaluation for Lecroy to determine whether he's competent to stand trial.
