Newlywed Dalia Dippolito appeared inconsolable when she arrived at her Florida home Wednesday morning and police told her that her husband had been murdered. But local authorities said her mournful sobs were just an act.
Boynton Beach, Fla., police allege Dippolito's tears and devastated demeanor were part of a carefully orchestrated performance, and that she actually hired a hit man to murder her husband of six months.
Husband files for divorce after wife tries to have him killed
Michael Dippolito officially filed for divorce after his wife, Dalia, was arrested for trying to have him killed. The court documents were filed Friday. The documents say the marriage is "irretrievably broken" and says the fact that Dalia allegedly tried to hire a hitman to have him killed shows that the marriage is over.
Also, one day before the hit was to supposed to go down last week, Mike Dippolito put the couple's townhome in his wife's name, giving her exclusive ownership of the property.
A lawsuit has also been filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, asking a judge to throw out a deed that gives Dalia Dippolito the couple's townhome and to restore the ownership to her husband Michael.
The lawsuit says Dalia never really loved her husband, and married him last February only because she wanted to get her hands on his $232,000 townhouse in Boynton Beach's Renaissance Commons.
The lawsuit says quote: "She did not love the Plaintiff and only married him to unlawfully obtain his property. She knew she wanted the Plaintiff dead and her representations of love and devotion were false at the time they were made... The sole purpose for the marriage was to convert all of his property to her own use."
