Talladega man set to plead guilty in murder-for-hire case

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

A Talladega County man plans to plead guilty in a murder-for-hire case.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Birmingham announced federal prosecutors charged the man in connection with his efforts to hire a member of the Ku Klux Klan to murder a man he suspected of raping his wife.

The U.S. Attorney's Office charged Allen Wayne Densen Morgan, 29, of Munford.

Morgan has agreed to plead guilty to the charge.

Federal officials arrested Morgan in August after he told undercover officers, whom he believed to be members of the KKK, that he would pay them to murder a black neighbor who Morgan's wife had accused of raping her, according to Morgan's plea agreement with the government. Morgan offered a watch, a necklace and a gun as payment for the murder and gave explicit details for the man's torture and murder, according to the plea agreement.

Morgan faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
