WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A Wichita Falls man has been sentenced to 21 years in prison in a failed 2015 murder-for-hire plot to have his daughter's boyfriend killed.
           
Jeffrey Bryan Peyton was sentenced Friday. In January the 58-year-old pleaded guilty to criminal solicitation to commit murder.
           
Wichita Falls police say the person who met Peyton and posed as a potential hit man was an undercover officer. Police say the boyfriend helped investigators by posing in a photograph staged to look as if he'd been shot. The boyfriend wasn't hurt.
           
Peyton's 39-year-old wife, Christina, was also arrested in the solicitation investigation and remains in custody pending trial.
