Domestic Violence Suspect Charged With Attempted Murder-for-Hire

State police say an inmate awaiting trial for five domestic violence arrests is accused of trying to arrange the murder-for-hire of his former girlfriend.

Police say both 53-year-old Greg Lavoie and the man he tried to hire were inmates at the Garner Correctional Facility in Newtown at the time. Lavoie is awaiting trial for other incidents involving the former girlfriend, including a burglary into her West Hartford home. He previously was held on $25,000 bond, which was increased to $750,000 after the recent arrest.
