State police in Indiana on Saturday arrested a man after a confidential informant reported the man tried to hire him to kill an estranged girlfriend.

Police said the man was arrested at a Pearce Hollow residence and placed in the Indiana County Jail on charges of solicitation to commit homicide, solicitation to commit aggravated assault and terroristic threats.

Indiana County District Attorney Patrick Dougherty identified the defendant as Kevin Peterman, 26, of Indiana. Dougherty said Peterman is an Indiana County native.

Peterman was arraigned by District Judge Guy Haberl in Indiana. Peterman's bond was set at $100,000 straight cash.
