KOAT-TV in New Mexico has released a chilling audio recording between convicted murderer and rapist Dana Martin and Tanner Ruane, who late last year were involved in a plot to castrate and kill Justin Bieber.

Ruane, the nephew of Mark Staake, another inmate in on the plan, had been instructed by Martin to strangle Bieber with a paisley tie and then castrate him with hedge clippers. In the recording, Martin asks, ”Did he go over the Bieber thing with you?” referring to the plan.

“Nah. The way I like to work dude, I like to know as little as possible,” Ruane said. “He’s gonna use one of the things you gave him, and then he’s gonna take care of it.”

“We went and bought the hedge clippers,” Ruane said. “You’re gonna give me 5 large ($5,000) for each one I get.”

“Tie it really tight, and that cuts off all the oxygen, and then tie it in the back again, really tight. That seals the deal,” Martin said.
