Con Man Wanted Hitmen to Store Heads of Judge, Prosecutor in Formaldehyde Until His Release

Joseph Romano, a convicted con man, wanted revenge for being sentenced to 15 years behind bars.

So much so, reports the New York Daily News, that he tried to hire hitmen to torture and decapitate the judge and prosecutor who oversaw his case in New York.

An added bonus to the killers: Store their heads in formaldehyde until Romano’s release from prison, according to the Daily News, citing authorities at a court hearing Tuesday.

Romano, 49, was convicted in 2010 of wire and bank fraud in connection with a scheme to sell collectible coins at outrageously inflated prices.
