COVINGTON, La. (AP) — A supposed hit man turned in a would-be employer who wanted his business partner killed, Louisiana authorities said Thursday.

Ahmad Slyyeh, 30, of Metairie, turned himself in Wednesday night, while detectives were searching for him, and was booked on one count of solicitation for murder, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s office said in a news release.

The man he tried to hire told authorities and the business partner, Capt. Lance Vitter said.

The news release did not identify the business but said it was in the Slidell area.

It was not immediately clear whether Slyyeh has an attorney who could speak for him.

His bond was set at $225,000, according to the sheriff’s office website.
