Pastor Kevin Pushia pleaded guilty

Pastor Kevin Pushia helped kill a disabled man for his life insurance money. He faces life in prison for his roll in the murder.

Prosecutor Robin Wherley said Pushia confessed to taking out multiple life insurance policies in Wallace’s name, then paying a hit man $50,000 to kill him.

That money had come from the treasury of a small East Baltimore church where Pushia was a pastor.

What next? According to his defense attorney, Pushia made some poor choices, now he’s trying to face the future.

“His plea was an effort to purge himself, emotionally and spiritually.”

He’s lucky. Murder for hire can put you on death row. But who want to execute a pastor? I bet the DA is happy.
