Phoenix police detectives arrested a Mesa man Thursday in connection with a contract to have his wife and her family murdered, police said.
Dimitri Rozenman, 38, was arrested on suspicion of four counts of conspiracy to commit murder after an undercover investigation revealed that he had contracted to have his wife and her family murdered, Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said.
Angry over a dispute involving the financial settlement of his divorce, Rozenman contracted to have his wife, her sister and her parents murdered, Thompson said. The names of the victims were not released.
“He was displeased with the arrangements that were made (in the divorce settlement),” Thompson said. “That’s why he contracted to have his wife and her family killed.”
In the settlement, Rozenman was ordered to pay more than $475,000 to his wife for her interests in their properties, according to court documents. Rozenman owns a cigar business in Phoenix and Scottsdale and the couple shared a Mesa home.
At one point, Rozenman was led to believe that the murder contract had been fulfilled, Thompson said.
“Information was conveyed to him that his wife, her sister and both parents had been killed,” Thompson said.
Police could not disclose terms of the contract or the time span of the investigation because aspects of the investigation were ongoing.
Rozenman’s divorce was finalized in January and joint custody of the couple’s 3-year-old twins was awarded, according to court documents.
It was noted in court documents that during divorce proceedings, Rozenman sent his wife “nasty” e-mails to his wife. Due to this, the court determined that Rozenman had a “serious lack of self-control.”
For the e-mails, Rozenman was ordered to take a court-sponsored conflict resolution course.
Police also accused Rozenman of one count of criminal damage after investigators learned that he had destroyed unspecified property that belonged to his wife, Thompson said.
