Two men have been arrested for an alleged murder-for-hire plot involving teen pop sensation Justin Bieber in New York last month.

Cops say the men planned to kill and castrate Bieber.

Police were tipped off about the grisly plan by incarcerated murderer Dana Martin, who was reportedly the brains behind the horrific idea.

The convict, who is currently serving two life sentences behind bars in New Mexico, is said to have recruited fellow Las Cruces inmate Mark Staake to carry out four gruesome slaughters upon his release. Staake then brought in his nephew Tanner Ruane, who was allegedly tasked with cutting off the victims' testicles, including Bieber's and his bodyguard's, according to police.

The plan began to fall apart when a newly-freed Staake was arrested in Vermont on outstanding warrants, leaving Ruane to try and carry out the Bieber killing himself, according to New Mexico authorities.
