According to the affidavit, the Navy aviation structural mechanic and his wife had been having marital problems for two or three years. Ghesquiere complained to a friend, late June to early July, that his wife wasn’t going to let him see his child and he wanted to do something about it.
“I want to get rid of this [expletive] because she is going to keep [expletive] with me,” Ghesquiere said, according to the affidavit. “Do you have someone that will off that [expletive].”

The source told Ghesquiere he or she knew someone who could kill the wife and urged him not to discuss the matter with anyone else. In reality, the source contacted the NCIS about what Ghesquiere was plotting, the affidavit said.

The source recorded a subsequent conversation with Ghesquiere on Aug. 2 at the source’s home. And two days later, Ghesquiere and the source talked again about the plot inside a vehicle the ATF had equipped with cameras.
The source eventually introduced Ghesquiere on Aug. 10 to an undercover ATF agent who was posing as the hit man. During the conversation, Ghesquiere told the agent he wanted his wife dead. He offered $1,000 and 80 pills of Adderall as a down payment. He said he would later pay $50,000 from the insurance money, the affidavit said.
