Bond Lowered For Rhinelander Woman Charged With Allegedly Soliciting A Hitman

Oneida County Sheriff's Department

Bond for a Rhinelander area woman arrested for allegedly trying to solicit a hit man has been lowered in Oneida County Court.

27 year old Megan Danielczak is facing a Solicitation of First Degree Homicide charge and Domestic Abuse charges. Danielczak has been jailed on a $15,000 cash bond. She posted that bond in February. Her attorney argued for a bond reduction, which was approved by Judge Patrick O'Melia. He lowered bond to $5,000 cash with the condition she not have contact with her husband except in strictly controlled conditions involving the children.

Danielczak has entered a not guilty plea to the charges.

Rhinelander Police arrested Danielczak in February. They report detectives initially spoke with a concerned citizen who had received information that Danielczak was looking for someone to kill her husband. Detectives met with a witness who was allegedly able to get information on her husband's vehicle, a photo of him, and his work schedule from Megan Danielczak. Megan Danielczak met with an undercover state agent whom she understood to be a “hit-man,” and allegedly made a down payment to him to kill her husband. Investigators believe that a motivating factor in this case was financial gain.

Investigators received information that Danielczak’s husband has a life insurance policy through his place of employment in which Megan Danielczak is allegedly named as the beneficiary.
