Inmate Accused Of Plotting To Kill Arresting Officer

A Van Zandt County inmate is accused of plotting to kill the constable who arrested him.

Juan Flores of Whitehouse was arrested last Monday for a cattle scam.

Investigators say sometime last week, Flores offered another inmate $5,000 to kill Smith County Constable Danny Smith. He's now charged with solicitation of capital murder.

Flores and his wife, Raquel, are both in the jail, accused in the cattle scam. Officials say they're both illegal immigrants and could face more charges related to fraud and forgery.
