Dongwook Ko, 19, was charged Friday with conspiracy to commit murder, according to The Herald Times. Ko was convicted of attacking a 13-year-old girl with a knife at a Jacobs School of Music camp in 2019.

Police became aware of Ko’s alleged attempt to hire a fellow inmate to torture, disable and kill 14 people he blames for his conviction. Ko believed the 39-year-old inmate was a gang member who could arrange the killings, according to The Herald Times.

The list of individuals includes the victim’s parents, defense witnesses, two prosecutors and a journalist who reported on the case, according to The Herald Times.
