ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AOL) — An Alaska teenager plotted the murder of her best friend after a man she met online and started a relationship with offered her $9 million for footage of the slaying, authorities say.
Denali Brehmer, 18, was indicted by an Anchorage grand jury on June 14 for first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree and two counts of second-degree murder in the June 2 killing of 19-year-old Cynthia Hoffman, according to a statement by the Anchorage District Attorney’s Office.
Four Alaska teenagers, including 16-year-old Kayden McIntosh and 19-year-old Caleb Leyland, both of Anchorage, and 21-year-old Darin Schilmiller, of Indiana, were also indicted on the same charges. The defendants face a sentence of up to 99 years imprisonment for each of the murder charges.
The district attorney’s office says Brehmer plotted to kill Hoffman after meeting Schilmiller on the internet. The two had already begun a relationship when the 21-year-old, who was posing as a millionaire from Kansas named “Tyler” at the time, offered the teen at least $9 million to “rape and murder someone” and send him videos and photographs of the crime.
