According to the complaint, earlier this year, Layman used Craigslist to locate someone interested in a “10 day gig overseas.”
The body of the post read as follows:

On May 9, officials say Layman met in Ponca City with a person who responded to the Craigslist post.
However, Layman reportedly told the person who responded to the ad that her name was “Samantha Dowry,” the complaint states.
At the meeting, Layman explained the real reason for the job, which would be located in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The woman showed the person a PowerPoint presentation regarding the logistics of the murder and the identity of the target, taxi driver.
The instructions detailed how to seek out the target for help seeing tourist attractions around Tel Aviv, and to add the ricin to his coffee.
Once the target was dead, the tipster would be paid $4,000 in cash.
