LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — An imprisoned man whose infatuation with singer Justin Bieber included a tattoo of the pop star on his leg has told investigators in New Mexico he hatched a plot to kill him.

Court documents in a New Mexico district court say Dana Martin told investigators he persuaded a man he met in prison and the man’s nephew to kill Mr. Bieber, the singer’s bodyguard and two others not connected to the pop star.

Martin told investigators that Mark Staake and Tanner Ruane headed east, planning to be near a Bieber concert scheduled in New York. They missed a turn and crossed into Canada from Vermont. Mr. Staake was arrested on an outstanding warrant; Mr. Ruane was arrested later.

The two men face multiple charges stemming for the alleged plot.
