Murder for hire trial resumes

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - In a Palm Beach County courtroom, Boynton Beach's police department explained why the show "Cops" was brought into the Dalia Dippolito investigation.

"As far as the excitement of it, it had everything that would make for a great story, showing off phenomenal police work," said Boynton Beach police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater.

Police said Dippolito hired a hitman to kill her husband Michael Dippolito.

That hitman was an undercover officer according to police.

Dipolito was arrested in August 2009.

We don't know if Dalia Dippolito herself will take the stand in this trial.
