Police have charged Gregory Manor Hill with trying to hire a man to kill his wife's boyfriend.

Hill, 45, of 8825 N. Hickory Valley Road, is charged with attempted first-degree murder.

 Detective Lucas Fuller said he met with "a concerned citizen" who said Hill came to him "asking him to kill his soon-to-be ex-wife's boyfriend."

The detective said, "The concerned citizen explained in detail why the defendant wanted the victim murdered, how he wanted him killed, and where to locate the victim. The concerned citizen provided me with information of where the victim lived and what vehicle he drove.

"The concerned citizen informed me that the defendant had taken him to the victim's house twice to show him where he lived."

The citizen was able to obtain a recording of Hill talking with him about the murder-for-hire and agreeing to meet and pay a man named Sean on Wednesday.

It was arranged the same day that Hill met with an undercover agent (Sean) in the Walmart parking lot on Signal Mountain Road. Hill gave a $100 down payment and said he would pay more after he got it from his 401K.

The undercover office was recording the conversation.
