Jury selection begins in man’s 2nd murder-for-hire case

YORK, Pa. (AP) – Jury selection has begun for a central Pennsylvania man accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill a police informant – and then trying to hire someone else to kill that man, too.

Forty-eight-year-old Gregory Hess was acquitted earlier this year in York County of trying to hire someone to kill a male acquaintance of his estranged wife.

He’s now accused of having tried to arrange – from prison – the killing of a man allegedly hired for that slaying and then the killing of the second prospective hit man.

Hess is charged with two counts of criminal solicitation to commit murder, conspiracy and criminal use of a communication facility

During his trial in May, he testified that he wanted the first alleged target beaten up, not killed.
