The Dania Beach man accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill his family pleads not guilty.
39-year old Jason Simione is charged with three counts of three counts of solicitation to commit first degree murder, one count of possessing a destructive device and one count of culpable negligence.
He's also accused of beating his dog. His lawyer says Simione and his wife are going through a bitter divorce and the allegations are overblown.
Simione’s bond is set at $5 million.
