A woman was arrested after paying a man to kill three people.

Authorities said that the mother of Pennsylvania, tried to hire a hitman to kill her daughter’s former boyfriend, his sister and sister’s boyfriend.

Denise Nagrodski claimed that former boyfriend was abusive towards her daughter and caused her to miscarry twins.

Authorities in New Jersey, said that the State Police foiled the plot after agents met twice with her to discuss the murder plans.

The suspect did not know that the hitman was an undercover agent. They arrested her around 7:30 p.m. Nagrodski met the undercover officer at the Phillipsburg Mall shopping center in New Jersey, where she agreed on a price of $1,000 for the three deaths.

Nagrodski allegedly paid the detective $500 up front, and gave pictures of the victims. She also drew a map of the house they live in.

She originally asked the undercover officer to shoot the former boyfriend and his sister in the head twice, “one for each twin,” prosecutors said.

She then changed her mind, and asked him to burn the victims alive and to make sure they know that she was behind the revenge attack.

As soon as Nagrodski left the mall, she was arrested.

In addition to attempted murder, prosecutors charged Nagrodski with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit arson and attempting to tamper with evidence. She could face up to 60 years in prison. Nagrodski remained jailed on $2 million cash bail.
