WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -
Dalia Dippolito testified before a judge in West Palm Beach Tuesday afternoon in an attempt to get the charges against her thrown out in her murder-for-hire case.
The Boynton Beach woman said the plot was just an acting project that she, her husband Michael Dippolito and former boyfriend Mohamed Shihadeh were going to post on the web.
Dippolito described the videotaped recordings of her with Shihadeh-turned confidential informant was all part of the script for a murder-for-hire plot that involved a wife hiring a hit man to kill her husband.
But Dippolito wanted to back out when she found out police were going to be part of the fake plot.
She said when she met with Shihadeh at a Chilli's restaurant back in 2009, she told him she wanted to back out, but he threatened her.
"He lifted his shirt and showed his gun," Dippolito said.
Dippolito said Shihadeh told her he was being pressured by police to continue with the fake plot.
