A convicted killer locked up in New Mexico plotted to have Justin Bieber murdered and castrated ... but for some mysterious reason, he threw a wrench into his own plans -- this according to a local news report in New Mexico.

According to KRQE News, convicted murderer Dana Martin -- currently serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl in Vermont in 2000 -- recruited a fellow inmate at Las Cruces prison named Mark Staake to carry out the murder once Staake was released. 

It's unclear when the plot was originally hatched, but Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane -- whom Staake had later recruited to help -- reportedly planned to execute the murder plan in NYC last month, where Bieber was performing at MSG.

Martin reportedly told police the plan was to kidnap Bieber and his bodyguard and strangle them with paisley ties, Martin's calling card. Ruane was then going to castrate them.

According to KRQE, Martin is obsessed with Bieber and even has a tattoo of Bieber on his leg.

But for some reason Martin blew the whistle on his accomplices -- and Staake was arrested in Vermont on outstanding warrants before carrying out the deed.

Ruane made it to NY with a stash of tools -- including pruning shears -- but according to the report police intercepted him before anything happened, and placed him under arrest.

Honestly I can't wish murder on anyone but what a great fantasy if one of these guys would turn their attention to Kim Kardashian and her entire family

God loves Justin Bieber. Therefore nothing will happen to him like this. His mom is a praying mom. He's a sweetheart. Don't make jealous comments.

What balls? Justin Bieber doesn't have any. He's 10 or 12 at the most - at least that's what I think of this 18 year old boy.

Good grief! Time to put these rabid dogs down. I don't care for the Biebs as a musician, but Jesus Jacob Christ on a cracker these guys are nuts.

"There's nothing to castrate" "Have his balls even dropped yet?" All of you saying this are extremely ****ing rude. You may not like him, but you are crossing the line when you make jokes about someone plotting a murder against him. Get some respect.

It wasn't for "some strange reason", it has been widely reported that the guy has been trying for years to get transferred into the Federal prison system. This was his attempt to set something up across state lines that they couldn't ignore.

To bad JB went from a nice kid, to an arrogant as$@#%& ! I guess that's what happens when you have too much money and attention, and not enough common sense and education. Miley, Britney...are you listening?
