July 01, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Spanish police have arrested a man who they suspect hired a contract killer or a team of killers to eliminate his boss in a desperate bid to avoid being laid off, the newspaper El Pais reported.

The head of audiovisual services at the Barcelona International Convention Center contracted a Colombian man who shot and killed the director of the center on Feb. 9, according to police. The director had planned to lay off the arrested man as part of a restructuring project, police said.

El Pais reported that the suspect, through his sister, contracted a team of six Colombians who planned and carried out the killing.
