ANNA, Ill. - An Anna, Illinois man is charged with solicitation of murder for hire.
The Union County State's Attorney says Brian Rodgers, 28, attempted to make arrangements with a third party to kill his uncle for $1000.
He allegedly notified an unnamed person seeking help in finding someone to kill his uncle.  That person then contacted police.  Rodgers was arrested after an undercover investigation.  He was recently convicted of Battery and Criminal Trespass to Real Property, both involving his uncle.
Rodgers is being held at the Tri-County Detention Center on $500 bond.
