Three Men Sentenced in Delaware Murder-For-Hire Scheme

April 23, 2018

Three men found guilty in a murder-for-hire scheme in Delaware have been sentenced.

News outlets report 46-year-old Ryan Shover, 53-year-old Michael Kman and 55-year-old Paul Disabatino are the last of four men sentenced in the plot in which 43-year-old Wayne Cappelli was killed for life insurance proceeds.

New Castle County Superior Court Judge Richard R. Cooch sentenced the three Friday. David Hess was sentenced in May.

Authorities say Cappelli was fatally beaten with a baseball bat in February 2013.

Kman, Disabatino and Hess were Cappelli’s friends and had talked him into taking out a $360,000 life insurance policy. Cappelli listed Disabatino as a beneficiary of the policy in November 2012.

Shover was enlisted through Kman to kill Cappelli in exchange for $30,000 from the insurance payouts.
