A Chicago woman was charged with trying to hire a hit man to take out her ex-cop’s new girlfriend, who serves as Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s bodyguard.

Ortiz faced serious charges, including incitement to contract murder for the plot in which she asked for her intended victim – who has not been named – to be burned alive in a car.

Ortiz and Washington’s relationship ended when Ortiz accused the former officer of abusing her.

She claimed Washington pinned her by the arm as she tried to leave their shared home.

But in August 2019, Washington was acquitted of the domestic battery charges and a judge issued a protective order banning contact between the two. Chicago Tribune reported.

Months later, in November 2019, Ortiz was arrested after she hired an undercover agent she believed was a hit man to kill a woman she believed to be Washington’s new girlfriend.

The 56-year-old initially sought out her apartment building’s handyman to kill the woman, offering him $5,000 or $500 and a new TV or to find her someone else to do the job.

He immediately contacted the police, who instructed him to grant her request and then give her the name of an undercover officer.

Ortiz met the undercover cop in a parking lot where they spoke for an hour.

She told the officer that she wanted him to kidnap the woman and then drive to a remote location and set the car on fire with the woman inside.

She told the undercover cop that she wanted the murder to take place before Thanksgiving so that Washington and her partner couldn’t spend the vacation together in the house she once shared with Ortiz.

According to prosecutors in Chicago, Ortiz said she planned to flee to Puerto Rico as soon as the other woman was dead.

Ortiz, who was sentenced to 10 years, was given credit for the 697 days she spent in prison and will be eligible for parole in November 2024, the Sun Times reported.
