A divorce attorney has been arrested on suspicion of trying to hire a hit man to kill his wife.

Steven Liss, 53, is set to be arraigned today on four counts of solicitation to commit murder, false imprisonment and spousal battery.

Liss was arrested after his wife, Karen, and community members "came forward with concerns for Karen's safety," said San Diego police spokeswoman Monica Munoz.

"On multiple occasions over the past several months, Liss sought the help of others to have his wife murdered," Munoz said.
