Cruz is scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon -- we're told he will plead not guilty. 

If convicted on the attempted murder charge, Cruz could be sentenced to life.

The official complaint lists his wife, Jennifer Campbell, as the intended target. The D.A. says they will ask for bail to be set at $2,000,000.

Cruz was arrested on Thursday after he allegedly tried to hire a couple of homeless men to kill his wife. The men told TMZ Cruz gave them box cutters and offered them $1,000 to do it.

I know the economy is bad and all, but $1000 seems kinda light.

Just because someone is homeless, does not mean they have no morals. What a foolish man, Mr. Cruz.

If he hadn't tried to low-ball the hitters, I bet they wouldn't have gone to the police.
