LAS CRUCES, N.M. (December 13, 2012)—A New Mexico prison inmate whose infatuation with Justin Bieber included a tattoo of the pop star on his leg has told investigators he hatched a plot to kill the teen idol.
Court documents in a New Mexico district court say Dana Martin told investigators he persuaded a man he met in prison and the man's nephew to kill Bieber, Bieber's bodyguard and two others not connected to the pop star.
He told investigators that Mark Staake and Tanner Ruane headed east, planning to be near a Bieber concert scheduled in New York City, but they missed a turn and crossed into Canada from Vermont.
Staake was arrested on an outstanding warrant and Ruane was arrested later.
The two men face multiple charges stemming for the alleged plot.
