A Fort Payne man has been charged with criminal solicitation for murder. 

Forty-one year old Joshua Kilgro was charged Tuesday.   The evidence shows Kilgro contracted with another person to have a third party murdered.  Kilgro is at the DeKalb County Detention Center on other charges. This new charge carries a bond of $250,000.  

The proposed victim of the plot has been under protective measures since the first hint of danger.

The investigation continues.
