A Revere, Missouri man pleads guilty to solicitation of murder for hire and was sentenced to 25 years in prison in Hancock County Circuit Court in Carthage Thursday.

As part of a negotiated plea, 27 year old Christopher Brown had two other murder for hire charges and two sexual abuse charges dropped.

Brown is alleged to have offered a fellow Hancock County Jail inmate $15,000 to kill a four year old to prevent the child from testifying against Brown on the sexual abuse charges.
