Birmingham, Alabama — A man has been indicted on federal charges for allegedly attempting to hire an undercover FBI agent posing as a member of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) to murder a black neighbor he suspected of being guilty for the rape of his wife. Allen Wayne Dense Morgan, a 29-year-old, has been charged with using a telephone and a motor vehicle — interstate facilities and travel — with the intent to commit murder-for-hire. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Morgan has agreed to plead guilty. He faces a maximum penalty of ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
The FBI impersonated the KKK and the Morgan allegedly said he would pay the undercover Special Agent to murder a neighbor in retaliation for rape accusations from his wife. Morgan reportedly offered the FBI a watch, a necklace, and a gun as payment for the murder. Morgan reportedly gave the FBI explicit details for the would-be torture and murder.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office:
The U.S. Attorney’s Office did not specify how the FBI came into contact with Morgan; however, in such cases the FBI usually gets involved after a concerned third-party reports that someone is attempting to hire them for murder.
