US v. Acierno, No. 07-4473

Defendant's conviction for using a facility of interstate commerce with the intent that a murder be committed in consideration for payment of money under 18 U.S.C. section 1958(b)(1) is affirmed where the evidence was sufficient to support a finding that defendant agreed to pay an undercover agent, not just to cover expenses, but also as consideration for the murder of her estranged husband.
