Kenneth Hughes said Good Morning, America this morning, because, well, that's what happens to guys from Garland whose wife and daughter hire a hitman to off dear ol' Dad.

Which ain't how Dallas police see it: Since Monday morning, they've been holding 56-year-old Shirley Hughes and the couple's 31-year-old daughter, Tammy Lewis, alleging both hired an undercover cop (whoops) to off Kenneth Hughes for $200,000 in insurance dough-re-mi.
