WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. -

A Marshfield man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend last September is now accused of trying to hire his cellmate to kill the victim's boyfriend.

A criminal complaint stated that while incarcerated in Wood County, Gabriel Campos offered another inmate $4,600, a car and an AK-47 assault rifle as payment to carry out the crime.

Campos is charged with killing 18-year-old Maisie McCullough, the mother of his 2-year-old son. She was found stabbed to death at the Marshfield home of Campos' mother Sept. 7. Campos was arrested at a Wisconsin Rapids motel the next day with their son, who was unharmed.

WSAW-TV reported a June trial date has been set in McCullough's murder. Campos is expected to enter a plea to the newest charge Feb. 26.
