LEXINGTON -- A Lexington Islamic leader is facing a maximum sentence of life in prison according to an indictment returned by a federal grand jury.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that the grand jury indicted Mahmoud Shaker Shalash, John Sadiqullah and Abdul Hadi on conspiracy charges related to an alleged murder-for-hire plot.

The indictment alleges that between April 30 and May 8, the three men agreed to "seize, confine, kidnap, abduct, and carry away" the intended victim and a member of the victim's family.
