ALBUQUERQUE - A New Mexico inmate who police said recruited two men to kill four people, including teen pop star Justin Bieber, snitched on his alleged accomplices before the plot could be carried out, according to a report on KRQE TV.

The murder plan included castrating the victims.

Inmate Dana Martin, the alleged ringleader, is serving a life sentence for the rape and murder of a Vermont teenager in 2000. The men who were supposed to carry out his wishes were to use a paisley tie, as Martin had used in his crimes, to strangle the victims.

According to the report, Martin is obsessed with Bieber and has a tattoo of the singer on his leg.

One of the alleged accomplices was caught on outstanding warrants. The other was arrested with murder tools and pruning shears on him.
