SCRANTON — A man convicted in a murder-for-hire plot was sentenced Thursday to 35 years in federal prison.

Gary Williams, 46, of Scranton was convicted in 2013 of being involved in a plan to kill a man’s ex-wife.

Federal prosecutors accused Williams of plotting with Edward McLaughlin to shoot and kill McLaughlin’s ex-wife who lives in our area.

McLaughlin allegedly shipped a rifle from his home in Florida to Williams’ home in Scranton.

The plot was never carried out because Williams’ girlfriend at the time   found out and told authorities.

McLaughlin pleaded guilty last year to his role in the plot. He is awaiting sentencing.
