An elementary school principal from St. Louis has been arrested. Police claim that Cornelius Green, 35, paid a friend to murder his seven months pregnant girlfriend.
According to prosecutors Cornelius hired his childhood friend Phillip J. Cutler, to kill Jocelyn Peters, 30, and her unborn baby. Phillip went through with the plan and killed Jocelyn and her baby.
Investigators claim that they discovered that Cornelius had sent Phillip $2,500 in cash on March 20 — four days before Jocelyn was killed.
Cornelius and Phillip were both indicted on two counts of first-degree murder Thursday.
