Valley firefighter George Tiaffay, accused of paying $600 to a homeless man to murder his estranged wife, has entered a plea of not guilty.

46-year-old Shauna Tiaffay's body was discovered insider her apartment off Sahara Avenue near Interstate 215 in September 2012.

The man allegedly hired to carry out the crime, Noel "Greyhound" Stevens, pleaded guilty and implicated George Tiaffay in the crime.

An autopsy revealed Shauna Tiaffay died of blunt force trauma. Police indicated there were no signs of forced entry at her home.

According to Stevens' arrest report, a friend of his tipped police off to the slaying and claimed Stevens had told him that he used a hammer so hard on his victim that it broke.

Both George Tiaffay and Stevens were charged with murder with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit murder, robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit burglary.

A trial has been set for Jan. 13, 2014.
