Dalia Dippolito: Did ‘Cops’ set up wife in murder-for-hire case?

Video shows Dalia Dippolito telling an undercover cop she wants her husband dead, but screaming later when police falsely told her he had been killed. Still, two Florida juries have refused to convict Dippolito of hiring a hit man to carry out the killing.

When Dippolito’s third trial starts in June, defense lawyer Brian Claypool plans to argue that Boynton Beach police pressured an informant to help set her up because the “Cops” police reality show wanted to focus on the case.

Nancy Grace debates the Dippolito case in this episode of “Crime Stories.”
