28-year-old Travis Kilburger, of Corning, was arrested Wednesday for the solicitation of murder after a week long investigation by the Tehama County DA's office and the Tehama County Jail staff.

Investigators learned of Kilburger's plot hire individuals to kill two of his family members last week.

The family members targheted were scheduled to testify against Kilburger, and that appears to be the motivating factor behind this plot.
