When he asked for her hand in marriage . . .

A New York City man has been arrested for hiring a hitman to kill his 26-year-old wife, whom he believed had been unfaithful. No surprise to regular crime readers: The "hitman" was an undercover police officer.

But this story has a few twists: The 35-year-old husband made a down payment. He provided the hitman with a samurai sword. He ordered the hitman to cut off and bring back the wife's left hand so he could retrieve her $27,000 diamond wedding ring.

Extra points: The defendant is named Rockefeller Auguste.
