Who knew applying for a job could be so dangerous?

A 52 year old male and 16year old boy have been arrested in the US (Ohio) for plotting to murder people responding to job adverts in Craigslist.

One applicant who applied for the position of Farm hand had a gun pointed to the back of his head. He luckily escaped with a wound to the arm but another was not so lucky. Police found the body of a Floridian male buried in a shallow grave next to another empty grave (Supposedly intended for the guy that escaped).

And how was your day?
