ROSEVILLE - A 68-year-old Roseville man who police say tried to hire a "hit man" to kill his wife will be back in court Wednesday.

A preliminary exam for Charles Tringali is scheduled for Wednesday morning.

Tringali was arrested after giving an undercover detective a "deposit" to murder Barbara Tringali, who has been his wife for 27 years.

Police are revealing few details about the alleged plot. A tenant living in the Tringali home says Charles Tringali began talking about killing his wife a week ago. Tim Kulich says Tringali asked him to kill Barbara or to find someone who would.

Kulich told Local 4, ""I feel sorry for her. I don't know how this will affect her when she finds out. She really loved this guy."
