(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - A New Jersey man has been accused of conspiring with New York City cop Gilberto Valle to try to kidnap, rape and kill an unidentified woman in Manhattan.
Michael Vanhise was arrested in Trenton and charged in federal court papers unsealed Friday in Manhattan.
The FBI says Vanhise agreed to pay $5,000 to Officer Gilberto Valle for the abduction last year. Vanhise also admitted to emailing others about kidnapping, raping and killing women and children.
Valle was charged last year with targeting victims through a law enforcement database. He allegedly wanted to kidnap, rape, kill and eat women.
The officer's lawyer says Valle was engaging in sexual fantasies and intended no violence.
