A self-professed hit man who police said claimed he killed a Detroit police officer’s wife tried to commit suicide this morning, according to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. Vincent Smothers, 28, was found hanging just before 8:30 a.m. at the Wayne County Jail, according to a news release. Smothers was taken to a local hospital for treatment. His condition was not available. Smothers was arrested in April 2008 and is awaiting trial on a slew of cases including the killing of Rose Cobb, who was married to a Detroit police sergeant who may have contracted her hit. Smothers’ last court appearance was in October. He was being held in the Wayne County Jail on 28 charges, 13 of which are first-degree murder charges. [Link]
