Adair County native charged in murder-for-hire plot

An Adair County native has been charged in Warren County on a murder-for-hire scheme.

51-year-old Jeffrey Allan Young, a resident of Bowling Green and native of Adair County, was arrested and charged in the murder-for-hire plot on Tuesday by Warren County Sheriff’s Deputies. He faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder and solicitation of murder.

An arrest citation said a confidential informant provided detectives with the sheriff’s office two audio recordings from earlier this month in which Young approached the informant about carrying out the killing of his wife for money.

According to the Daily News, Young was arraigned Wednesday in Warren District Court on the two counts and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for today.

He remains lodged in the Warren County Jail.
