Ferdinand Augello made his court appearance Thursday.
Atlantic County prosecutors say Augello and James Kauffman plotted to kill April Kauffman, who was fatally shot inside the couple's Linwood home in May 2012.
Auguello is also charged with trying to have James Kauffman killed behind bars to prevent him from coming to trial. James Kauffman was found dead in his jail cell in January in an apparent suicide.
Prosecutors say James Kauffman told Augello about his wife's threats and solicited him to have her killed. Augello allegedly recruited the man believed to have shot April Kauffman.
A judge on Thursday set jury selection in the trial of Ferdinand Augello for Sept. 11.
