Two Michigan men were convicted of first-degree murder among other offenses for the 2022 killing of a jeweler whose attorney — one of those convicted — wrote himself into the victim’s will before ordering a hit on him.

Daniel "Hutch" Hutchinson, 47, was fatally shot on June 1, 2022 in Oak Park, Mich., in an “elaborate and shocking” scheme perpetrated by his attorney Marco Bisbikis and accomplice Roy Larry, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said in a statement on Thursday.

Larry is accused of being the one who pulled the trigger, while Bisbikis hatched the plan for the killing, per FOX 2 Detroit.

The duo were part of a larger group, two of whom — Darnell Larry and Angelo Raptoplous — pleaded guilty to solicitation to commit murder and testified against the co-defendants, The Detroit News and FOX 2 Detroit report.

Hutchinson’s wife Marisa Hutchinson was in the car with him during the shooting and survived, per the outlets. Marisa, who was reportedly also targeted, testified during the eight-day trial.

Assistant Prosecutor John Skrzynski said during the trial that Bisbikis made himself a trustee in the Hutchinsons’ trust before ordering the hit on the couple, according to The Detroit News. The couple were unaware of Bisbikis’ maneuver, which would have ensured his access to the trust once they died.

Darnell said he was hired by Bisbikis for the killing but passed the job on to Roy, his cousin, per FOX 2 Detroit.

Millions of dollars belonging to Hutchinson that the jeweler did not report to the IRS were stored in Bisbikis’ custody, Marisa testified during the trial, per FOX 2 Detroit.

Bisbikis and Larry were convicted of first-degree premeditated murder, conspiracy to commit premeditated murder, assault and felony firearm charges, per McDonald's statement.

They are awaiting their sentencing.
