Tommy Carlton was charged with solicitation to commit first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder for hiring a hitman to murder his ex-wife. The hit man, however, turned out to be an undercover police officer. With the help of Carlton's ex-wife, police staged a sting operation using posed photos where Elizabeth Carlton appeared to be shot in the head. The couple was in the middle of a bitter custody battle and Tommy Carlton, a registered nurse, owed $85,000 in child support. Video cameras captured the entire sting.
