An inmate serving time in a Wisconsin correctional facility is being accused of conspiring to arrange for the murder of a Madison, WI police officer.

The accused, 20-year old Alijouwon T. Watkins, allegedly took measures to arrange for the murder of a female police officer who had previously arrested Watkins for a domestic violence incident.

Watkins allegedly even went so far as to move money to pay for the murder. The suspect also allegedly knew the officer's personal details, including her address, phone number, and identifying information. 

Authorities say that the officer has been moved to desk duty during the investigation.

They are asking prosecutors to charge Watkins with conspiracy to commit homicide and solicitation to commit perjury (related to an alleged attempt to contrive false witness testimony over his domestic violence case).
