Rage over MySpace photo leads to arrest

A 22-year-old woman was arrested after authorities say she tried to hire someone to kill another woman whose photo appeared on her boyfriend's MySpace.com Web page.

Heather Michelle Kane was booked Tuesday for investigation of conspiracy to commit murder, Mesa Detective Jerry Gissel said.

Kane was arrested after she met with an undercover police detective at a grocery store, authorities said. Court records show Kane offered to pay $1,000 to have the woman killed — $500 up front and $500 after the job was completed.

But the report said Kane gave the undercover officer only $400 at the meeting and planned to pay the rest of the money later.

The records say Kane gave the undercover officer photographs taken from her boyfriend's social networking Web page of the woman she wanted killed. She also requested a photo of the woman's dead body.

It wasn't clear if the boyfriend and the targeted woman were romantically involved, Gissel said.
