Two men arrested for the murder of 35-year-old mortgage consultant William Cybulski say the victim faced a debilitating illness and ordered a hit on himself for $5,000. Cybulski's next-door neighbor, 29-year-old Jeremy Miello and 35-year-old Waymond Jeter have been arrested in the Aug. 22 killing.

Relatives and friends say that Cybulski wasn't suffering from a fatal illness.

He had business and personal plans, including marrying his longtime girlfriend and was going to attend a friend's wedding in New York in the fall.

When detectives searched Cybulski's home computer, they found extensive research on cancers, leukemia, poisons and assisted suicide.

They also found an online document titled, "Will I go to hell if I kill myself."
