We have more news on a TBI Investigation into the alleged plan that two individuals in Rutherford County reportedly had to have one of their wife’s shot to death. Kalpesh Patel will appear in court on April 29, 2014 to file a plea in the case that charges him with “Solicitation to Commit First Degree Murder” and the “Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder.”
Last year Patel, age 44, of Murfreesboro, was arrested at the Almaville Market in Smyrna after the 16th Judicial District Attorney General requested the TBI investigate a murder plot. The TBI opened the case after receiving information that two subjects had solicited a potential hit man to shoot Pratakkumer Patel’s wife. Pratakkumer is the cousin of Kalpesh Patel. The two paid the hit man $15,000 cash and provided an address, vehicle description and photograph of the intended victim. 31-year old Pratakkumer lives in Gallatin.
Pratakkumer will also appear in court on April 29, 2014. He too faces charges of “Solicitation to Commit First Degree Murder” and the “Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder.”
Both men are out of jail on bond.
