Food Network star pleads no contest to plotting murder

Posted on

Juan-Carlos Cruz, the pastry chef who once hosted Food Network’s Calorie Commando, pleaded no contest today in L.A. to charges that he attempted to arrange his wife’s murder, reports People. Cruz was arrested in May after a police sting operation foiled his plan to offer $500 to a pair of homeless men to kill his wife, Jennifer Campbell. He could face nine years in prison when he is sentenced on Dec. 13.
