GREENVILLE, S. C. (FOX CAROLINA) U.S. Attorney Sherri Lydon said in a press release Friday that an Easley man will spend 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to murder-for -hire. 

According to the release, Travis Dale Brady, 35, of Easley was fired in 2017 after a disagreement with fellow employees of a different race. 

The FBI was notified after a concerned person said Brady had been overheard threatening to blow up his former business as revenge. 

Lydon said the FBI introduced an undercover agent to Brady. The FBI said it became clear that the Easley man wanted to buy a bomb to kill two of his former employees. 

The press release said that Brady contacted the undercover agent in March of 2018. He wanted the agent to buy and deliver the bomb to the residence of his former co-worker. 

The FBI said Brady paid $100 to the agent for his services. 

On March 16, 2018, Brady was arrested. Lydon said he cooperated with the FBI during his interview. 

Brady plead guilty to murder-for-hire charges Friday morning in a Greenville federal court. 

He was sentenced to a statutory maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
