A North Carolina man sentenced last month to 45 years in prison for his role in a homegrown terrorist plot, faces new charges that he tried to hire a hit man to behead three witnesses that testified against him, the Charlotte Observer reported.

Raleigh, N.C. resident Hysen Sherifi was charged Tuesday with nine counts.

Under the latest charges, he plotted with his younger brother and female friend to pay $5,000 to an FBI informant to carry out the beheadings, according to the indictment. The informant gave Sherifi fake photographs to try and prove the hits were confirmed, according to the Associated Press.

The younger brother and female friend were arrested last month.

The first rule about homegrown terrorist plots: don’t talk about homegrown terrorist plots.

Or so goes the code of a North Carolina prisoner recently sentenced on terrorism charges; federal court documents now allege the man plotted to kill witnesses that testified against him, including by decapitation, reports the Associated Press.

An affidavit unsealed on Monday accuses Hysen Sherifi of plotting to kill witnesses from his cell in prison, according to the AP.  An FBI informant posing as a hitman met with Sherifi’s brother and a female friend and was given $5,000 and a photo of one person to be targeted.

Sherifi, 27, got 45 years in prison earlier weeks ago in what the prosecution argued was a conspiracy to attack the Quantico, Va., Marine base and targets abroad.
