On police recordings, Jessica Booth made it clear she was willing to kill to get the money she needed.
Undercover: "Are you ready to take a ^&*&* life?" Booth: "yea."
Police say Booth's plan was to steal what she thought was cocaine and money from a Memphis home and she was ready to kill.
Undercover: "What if some kids in there?
Booth: "If they old enough to run they mouth, they got to get blasted. Cause I'm sorry, I love kids but i'm sorry."
Undercover: "Old woman in there?
Booth: "I don't give a *&%*. It's almost they time anyway."
Booth thought she was hiring a hit man but he was really an undercover officer who several times asked if she was sure she knew what she was doing.
Undercover: "Are you ready to do this?
Undercover: "Do you want to do this?
Undercover: "You ready?"
Booth: "I'm ready."
Undercover: "O.K. Then."
Each conversation police had with Booth was recorded.
Undercover: "Testing, testing. 1-2. 1-2 OK buddy?"
On one recording, Booth assures the undercover officer she won't chicken out.
Booth: "I ain't tryin' to say i'm a pro at it but I kind of got an idea cause I been watching the movies you know what I'm saying."
