Former Cleveland Clinic nurse Andrew Martin pleads guilty in murder-for-hire case

CLEVELAND - A former Cleveland Clinic nurse has pleaded guilty in an alleged murder-for-hire plot.

The former nurse who's accused of trying to hire an emergency room patient to carry out the plan pleaded guilty Thursday in a Cleveland federal courtroom.

Authorities say 23-year-old Andrew Martin offered $10,000 to an ER patient to kill a woman in a dispute over ownership of her deceased brother's home. The woman was not harmed.

Investigators say the patient tipped off police that he had been asked by a nurse if he "ever killed anyone."

Martin was arrested last November.

He's due to be sentenced in July.
