PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

FOX 10 obtained the audio recording in which a woman allegedly tried to hire an undercover detective to murder witnesses in her case.

"It needs to be done before May 12th because that's my trial date." said Bernadette Beanes. "Of this year right?" said the undercover detective, she replied "of this year".

Beanes outlined the payment for the hit, "it's $5,000 a body and you'll be paid $20,000 total when the job is completely done" said Beanes.

Police say inmate Bernadette Beanes was willing to pay a hit man 20,000 dollars to have the witnesses in her case killed  believing she would be freed if no one could testify against her.  Beanes is in jail accused of shooting and killing her boyfriend during a SWAT standoff this past summer.

The detective asked about the child she wanted killed, "let me ask you this, is one of these people a kid?". Beanes replied  "uh huh.".

"How old?" asked the detective, Beanes replied with his age of eight. The detective confirmed what she wanted done twice, "you sure about that... You sure?" Beanes acknowledged "yeah" both times.

During the conversation the undercover detective asked Beanes a few times if she's sure she wants got thru with it.

"Is there a certain way you want this done?". Beanes replied "um make it look like an accident... but I mean we are going to go dump the bodies down in Mexico, so...".

Officers say they found out about Beanes plot from a tipster inside the jail.

"so you don't give a (expletive) you want them dead right girl? you understand that" said the Detective.  Beanes said "All four of them".

The detective asked if she had any thoughts on how he should do it, "You don't give a (expletive) how I do it? stab them? kill them?" Beanes replied, "however you want... you paint your masterpiece".

Beanes is now facing a conspiracy to commit murder charge.
