WATCH: Closing Arguments in Dalia Dippolito Murder-for-Hire Retrial

Closing arguments are taking place in the trial of Dalia Dippolito, who is accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill her husband in 2009. Watch live in the player above.

Late last year, a jury could not reach a unanimous verdict in the second trial against Dalia Dippolito.  Her arrest was featured on the television show “Cops” and undercover cameras recorded her discussing the hit with a cop who she believed was a paid killer.  She has claimed it was all an act for the television cameras.

This is Dippolito’s third trial for this crime. She was convicted after a first trial, but that decision was vacated. Her second trial ended in a mistrial after the jury could not reach a decision.
