MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee County inmate is accused of trying to recruit his cellmate to kill the mother of his child.

Mark Girtler, 31, did not  want his ex-girlfriend to testify against him in a domestic abuse case. So, authorities say he offered money to a fellow inmate who was being released, to find her and kill her.
 
They developed their "murder for hire" plan while behind bars at the House of Correction.
 
Today's TMJ4 spoke with the cousin of Girtler's ex-girlfriend who says he abused her for years.
 
"He is a very violent person," says Jessica Ortiz. "There'd be times when they'd come over for help, because he'd be chasing the kids or her. I'd  come out and tell him to leave the property, or wake up my husband to chase him out of here."
 
Ortiz says Girtler was willing to do anything to make sure no one testified against him. 
 
"He deserves life in prison," she says. "He put my cousin through hell, and the kids witnessed the abuse. I hope he rots in prison."
  
Ortiz's cousin went to authorities after a man claiming to be Girtler's former cellmate came to her door and left her a note that he'd been sent to kill her. That man also confessed the whole murder plot to the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department.
 
Investigators also intercepted letters and calls detailing Girtler's murder for hire plot.
