    Sentara Treats Man's Chronic Wounds

    A Virginia home remodeling contractor who tried to have a client killed has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. 

    Contractor Daniel W. Jamison was sentenced last week after trying to hire an undercover police officer as a hit man, The Washington Post reports.

    Jamison met with the officer to discuss the murder after the homeowner had Jamison charged with construction fraud for not completing a $41,000 remodeling job. 

    Jamison argued that he had not been serious when talking to the undercover officer, but Fairfax Circuit Court Judge Michael F. Devine said he did not "believe a word of" Jamison's story.
