Wife caught on tape 'plotting husband's death'
US police have released new hidden camera video of a woman allegedly attempting to hire a police informant to kill her husband.

Dalia Dippolito was arrested in August on a charge of solicitation to commit first-degree murder after Florida police staged an elaborate ruse to convince the 26-year-old her husband Michael was dead.

The new video allegedly shows Dippolito in a car with the informant, who was posing as the hired hit man.

"I'm a lot tougher than what I look," she says in the clip.

"I know you came here and were like oh what a cute little girl or whatever — you know but I'm not."

Dippolito proceeds to show the informant photographs of her husband and discuss a price for the murder.

"You're extremely beautiful," the informant says.

"Thank you but I just need to make sure everything is going to be taken care of," she replies.

Police claim Dippolito gave the informant a down payment of $US1200 ($A1428) so he could buy a handgun.

She also allegedly asked for a time for the hit so that she could get her hair done in Boca Raton to create an alibi.
