GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi police detective has testified that a video shows an oncologist and an alleged hit man discussing a plot to kill the divorce lawyer who represented the doctor's ex-wife.
The video was shown Wednesday in Leflore County Court in Greenwood during a preliminary hearing for 70-year-old Dr. Ralph Arnold Smith Jr.
The doctor is charged with conspiring to kill attorney Lee Abraham. Authorities say the plot led to a shootout on April 28 in Abraham's office in Greenwood.
Abraham was not killed.
Greenwood police detective Jeff Byars said Smith kept a hidden camera in his own office. Byars testified it shows Smith telling an alleged hit man that he wanted a photo showing Abraham dead.
