A man in Monaco paid a pair of hitmen over $330,000 (€250,000) in cash and gifts to kill his mother-in-law.
Wojciech Janowski previously serviced as Poland’s honorary counsel in Monaco and was married to the daughter of a heiress. In an attempt to gain access to the wealth of the mother-in-law, Janowski paid $272,000 (€200,000) in cash and an additional $67,000 (€50,000) in gifts.
Security officials do not believe that the wife of Janowski and the daughter of the victim had anything to do with the contract killing.
