Detroit — A Livonia man has been charged with soliciting another man to kill a friend's husband, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office said Friday.

Scott Fraser Porter, 48, asked a man to kill a female friend's husband, prosecutors said.

A probable cause conference in the case against Porter was held Friday and a preliminary examination of the case against him scheduled for April 22 has been canceled because the judge ordered him to undergo a competency evaluation.

He is not scheduled to appear in court until June 12, officials said.

Plymouth Township Public Safety Department officers arrested Porter last Wednesday.

He was arraigned last Friday in 35th District Court on charges of solicitation of murder, a life felony, and two counts of using a computer to commit a crime. The crime carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison.

A judge ordered him held on a $500,000 bond and required him to wear a GPS tether if he was released on bond. 

Police continue to investigate and no other details are being released at this time, official said.
