A Florida woman is accused of attempting to hire a hitman to "pop" her daughter's homeless lover after her grandchildren became infected with lice.

Pamela Vanorsdale, 50, was charged with criminal solicitation to commit murder after police said she tried to hire her former son-in-law, Daniel Dionne, 33, to carry out the killing of proposed victim, Dylan Loveless, 22.

Police learned of the plot after Dionne told them about the proposition.

Vanorsdale claimed Loveless abused her daughter's children, choking one of them and chasing another with dogs while making sexual comments. She plotted the killing based on that and her claim that the children became infected with lice.

Police say Vanorsdale admitted to asking Dionne to kill Loveless but said she was joking.

She was later released on $25,000 bail.
