NORTH PORT, Fla. -- A North Port woman accused to trying to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband and a former employee has entered a plea of no contest in court.

50-year-old Janeene Jones will likely serve more than ten years for each charge.  According to prosecutors, Jones attempted to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband after she took out a one million dollar life insurance policy on him.  She also tried to hire a hit man to kill a former employee of hers that threatened to tell police Jones and her ex-husband were running a home rental scam. 

Jones didn't know the hit man she was attempting to hire was actually an undercover police officer.  She will be sentenced on June 17th.
