He Wised Up in the Joint: Convicted for Whacking Out His Wife, Killer Allegedly Turns to Hitman to Carry Out His Next Piece of Work on a Broad...
The wisdom gained from 20 years in the can. 72-year-old convicted killer Charles Baeza (pictured above) allegedly learned his lesson only too well during his 20-year bit: If you need to snuff out your significant other, then never, ever, ever do it yourself. Instead, hire a hitman to whack her out! (Allegedly)
This slimeball rubbed out his wife in 1990 by pumping her full of holes at a Long Island bus stop. 20 years later, they let this sleazebucket out the hoosegow on parole. And it's not like this creep went exactly back to his old ways. Nope, this time there was a twisted twist (allegedly).
Cops in the Big Apple say this Sorry Charlie got into a beef with his new girlfriend after she wouldn't pay him back on an alleged $5,000 "loan" for dental work. But having learned a thing or two from his rehabilitative stint in the state freezer, this scumjob apparently knew better than to just take her out flippantly.
So maybe sue the broad for the money, or simply contact the police? Course not. The much more prudent course of action, after all, was to still pop the dame but to have someone else carry out the job! Put another way: 1-800-HITT-MAN.
But that's when things reportedly started to head south faster than a plate factory "prag." It turns out (cops say) that Baeza contacted the wrong damn person for this hit -- an undercover cop.
Cops say this scuzball met up with the undercover cop down at the local pizza parlor, although the two reportedly had trouble coming to terms on the hit. Seems that Baeza wanted to "haggle" over the price of the piece that would be used to pull off this little assassination (allegedly). "It was all just a joke," this skunk claimed after his arrest.
But now this goon may have do his future dickering and joking from the inside of a cell -- complete with another 20 years to further refine his skills at achieving domestic tranquility.
That's because cops have thrown the book at him with charges of criminal solicitation and attempted criminal possession of a weapon. Maybe next time around, he'll know to go the "buffer" route and hire an agent to deal with the hitman.
