Police yesterday charged a Portsmouth, England man with incitement to murder after he allegedly posted on the Web an offer of $25,000 for proof of the death of a Texas couple. Electronics engineer Paul Clark, 32, will appear before magistrates today, said Reuters. According to police, Clark used the Web to seek the death of Brandy and Rick Arnett of El Paso, Texas. He said he would pay up only when he had been sent photos confirming the couple's "termination". Clark's site contained pictures of the couple on their wedding day to help would-be assassins with their identification. It's not entirely clear why Clark took against the Arnetts. However, it appears that Clark became angry when he learned that Brandy Arnett was married. ®
