Pa. woman pleads guilty in Facebook slaying plot

    A Philadelphia woman has avoided prison after admitting she posted a Facebook offer of $1,000 for someone to kill her baby’s father.

    The Philadelphia Daily News reports 19-year-old Loudon Eley pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of conspiracy to commit murder and immediately paroled on a 3- to 23-month sentence.

    Investigators say Eley offered “a stack” in return for the death of Corey White in May and 19-year-old Timothy Bynum said he’d do it if she gave him the money first.

    Bynum’s attorney rejected a similar deal, saying his client considered the post a joke and will go on trial in March.

    White was fatally shot in August but both Eley and Bynum were in custody at the time and not charged in the killing.
