A woman in Florida was arrested after plotting to kill her daughter’s homeless boyfriend for allegedly giving her grandchildren lice, the Daytona News-Journal reports.
According to New Smyrna Beach police, Pamela Vanorsdale, 50, called her former son-in-law, Daniel Dionne, 33, on Thursday asking him to kill 22-year-old Dylan Loveless.
Police found out about the planned murder when Dionne went to a Daytona Beach police detective, News-Journal reports. Vanorsdale said she also wanted Loveless killed because “he messed with Dionne’s children, choked one of the kids and chased another child with dogs while making sexual comments to the child,” police told the News-Journal.
Vanorsdale told Dionne she would lure Loveless away from his homeless camp by telling him about potential work, then give Dionne a .25-caliber handgun with two bullets, which “would do the job if Dionne were to pop him in the head and chest,” investigators said. She also suggested Dionne leave Loveless’ body in South Carolina and then give her the gun back “because she could clean it and make it look like it was never fired,” police told the News-Journal.
When questioned by police Vanorsdale said she was only joking when she asked Dionne to kill Loveless. Her husband then gave police the handgun, according to the police report.
Vanorsdale was charged with criminal solicitation to commit murder and was released from jail on a $25,000 bail.
