A wannabe amateur porn star has been charged with enlisting a hitman to kill her boyfriend—but the hired gun turned out to be an FBI informant.

Rasheeda Johnson Turner was arrested last month in the alleged murder-for-hire plot, which authorities say involved tracking her sweetheart’s movements using an iPhone app. She pleaded not guilty Thursday in federal court.

The Los Angeles-area mom—known as “Mz. Fiesty” on her adult social-media pages—wanted to cash in on her 55-year-old beau’s $150,000 life-insurance policy, prosecutors say. She allegedly offered an informant $50,000 to do the deed.

Turner, 37, is charged with the use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder for hire. She faces 10 years behind bars, if convicted.

Turner’s court-appointed lawyer, Stephen Frye, said a trial is scheduled for February. He declined to comment on the charges.

The probe began in November, when the informant alerted an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to Turner’s alleged scheme.

According to the federal complaint, Turner initially solicited another person to kill her boyfriend, but they weren’t interested. The unidentified informant, acting at the request of the FBI, made Turner’s acquaintance soon after.

In their meetings, Turner told the bogus hit man that she worked in the medical field. But based on public social media posts and websites, Turner appears to be involved in amateur porn, an FBI agent’s affidavit states.

When the informant called Turner on Dec. 3, she used coded language to discuss her plan and suggested they meet the following morning. They agreed not to speak in further detail over the phone, the affidavit says.

The stoolie was outfitted with a recording device before meeting Turner at a Lakewood park, court papers state. The duo drove around in Turner’s vehicle, and she allegedly declared, “I was gonna off blood myself, but it’s hard because I got a kid.” (The FBI believes she was referring to the victim as “blood.”)

Turner allegedly said she’d obtained “pure acid” from a plumber and planned to use it on the alleged victim, identified in court records as L.G.

She rented a room and planned to lure L.G. there but ditched the idea, fearing her daughter would interrupt, court documents say.

Instead, Turner settled on hiring someone to do her dirty work, prosecutors claim.

“Once he is dead, I get the death certificate,” Turner told the informant. “Then they pay me—what?—within 30 days, the life insurance or whatever…”

When the tipster asked how Turner wanted her target killed, she replied, “I just want him dead and his phone gone because, you know, we be texting back and forth.

“I just need him to be done,” she added.

Turner claimed to have access to one of L.G’s bank accounts and said she expected him to approve access to another, the affidavit says.

She flashed a cellphone photo of L.G., and told the informant the alleged victim sleeps in his Lexus, court papers allege.

According to the complaint, Turner showed the informer a mobile app that allowed her to track L.G.’s location. The confidential source snapped a photo of the application, which showed a pin noting the beau’s whereabouts.

Turner said the tracker “tell me everywhere he at, when he moving and everything,” the affidavit stated. Using the app, Turner allegedly showed the informant a history of L.G.’s movements.

On Dec. 5, Turner allegedly called the fake killer and asked to expedite her scheme. “The kids needed to be picked up early,” she hinted. Two days later, Turner called again and warned, “That fly needs to be swatted.”

When they met again Dec. 8, Turner reiterated her plan. Her request was urgent because she feared L.G. was becoming close to a new woman and that he’d remove her from his life-insurance policy and bank accounts, the affidavit states.

Turner allegedly showed the informant a cellphone photo of the life-insurance policy, which listed Turner and her daughter as beneficiaries.

“I’m like, oh no, we gotta get it done ASAP so we can still get that fuckin’ money,” Turner said, according to court papers.

Turner then pulled up the tracking app and revealed Compton addresses where L.G. usually sleeps in his car. She subsequently took the informant on a tour of the spots where L.G. might park, the complaint alleges.

She said she didn’t want to know any details of the rubout; she only wanted to ensure the victim’s cellphone was destroyed, prosecutors say.

Turner allegedly advised the phony hired gun to use the code “Operation Dumbo” to notify her when the deed was done.

Prosecutors say Turner wanted her sweetheart killed the week of Dec. 11, and agreed to pay the informer $500 in advance of the insurance payout.

On Dec. 13, the informant called Turner and asked for L.G.’s exact location, prosecutors say. Turner allegedly provided the intel on his whereabouts, then confirmed she’d pay the pseudo-assassin for the murder.

Afterward, the feds contacted L.G. and arrested Turner.

According to the affidavit, Turner has a 2005 conviction for forgery and theft. She was arrested in 2016 for battery, which involved an assault on L.G., the FBI says.

During her conversations with the informer, Turner said she learned how to evade cops by watching television, court papers say.

“You gotta beat them at they own game,” Turner said. “I watch all that killer shows, so it tells you how to get away with shit. It tells you what to do.”
