Former Senate Candidate Hired a Hit Man

Former Tennessee U.S. Senate candidate Thomas Kenneth Owens (D) has been arrested in connection with an attempted murder-for-hire plot, WJHL reports.

"Owens was arrested after he met up with the hit man at a sports bar and paid him $500 as down payment to kill his uncle, Ernest 'Ernie' Widby. According to the TBI, Owens brought a picture of the intended victim and the victim's home address. That's when law enforcement got involved and arrested Owens after the payment was made."
