A Clay County man indicted in a murder-for-hire scheme is now scheduled go to trial in Clay on October 16.

But Brent Boggs, 54, of Big Otter Highway near Ivydale, has been sentenced to one year in jail on other charges related to destruction of property.

The destruction of property misdemeanor charges reportedly happened while Boggs (left) was on home confinement, and is related to the destruction on his ankle braclet.

The court found Boggs not guilty of escaping while on home confinement, but a Clay judge threw the book at him with the destruction charge, giving him maxiumum jail time.

He is incarcerated in Central Regional Jail.

Boggs attempted to hire two State Policemen, working undercover, to allegedly kill a former business partner, Dan Kessler, according to a criminal complaint.

He was recorded attempting to hire Cpl. L. J. Deskins and Cpl. B. L. Keefer to kill his former business partner.

The undercover officers said Boggs told them to 'bring back the victims head.'

The complaint indicates Boggs gave the undercover officers a Pontiac Grand Prix for up front payment, and were to be given $5,000 when the job was finished.

Boggs, a one-time schoolteacher, had been engaged in several small businesses, including a car lot, rental property and selling Christmas trees.
