A MAN has been arrested in the US after police in Alabama said they were investigating an alleged murder-for-hire plot against an Australian woman.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that police in Madison, Alabama, said a 28-year-old man was arrested at a Walmart store and was charged with murder and attempted murder.

They said the alleged plot began in August, when the alleged victim, who was 28, met with the alleged assailant to discuss a business deal, according to the newspaper.

The alleged attacker had told the woman that he wanted to kill her, the newspaper said.

Police said the victim’s mother told police the alleged attacker threatened to kill the woman if she did not agree to the business deal.

The newspaper said the suspect is described as white, 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds, with a bald head, and short black hair.
