Fred Knadler, the owner of Arizona Shower Door now accused of plotting to kill his wife, is a huge fan of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Fred Knadler, the Phoenix businessman accused of planning to kill his wife, praises Sheriff Joe Arpaio and rails about crime caused by "illegals" in a letter he sent to the county last month.

Sounding very much like the bigots whose letters were referenced in a recent federal report on racial profiling by Arpaio's deputies, Knadler criticizes the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors alleged lack of support for the sheriff. (What lack of support? Aren't they getting along now?)

"Have you ever gone to our county jail and noticed the great propensity of inmates that have come from nations to the South of Arizona, through this porous border and into our business and residential communities?" wrote Knadler, owner of Arizona Shower Door, who's now being held in county jail on a $2 million cash bond.

The Supervisors simply don't know "how important a sheriff like Joe Apparo is" in the fight against local crime, which "primarily comes from our neighbors to the South," Knadler wrote. "I for one and everyone I know will continue to support Joe Arpaio and reelect him again..."

Knadler's accused of conspiracy for allegedly trying to hire one of his employees to help off his wife, Libby.

(Scroll down for letter.)

Knadler began Arizona Shower Door in the 1980s; the company now boasts of branches in seven states.

In a recording made by the savvy worker, court records state, Knadler, 74, explains how he'll pay the man to hide Libby's car, dig a grave in the desert and bury the body, which would be wrapped in a sheet or plastic.

Knadler's wife had hired an attorney and was planning to divorce him, and the businessman was worried she would cost him millions, records state.

Police arrested Knadler on January 14th, about a month after he sent the December 16 letter to the county.

This guy clearly had a lot on his mind -- which to hate more, wife or "illegals?" In his frenzy, it seems he's confused which governmental body stopped Arpaio from processing illegal immigrants in county jails. Knadler's letter was written a day after news that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement bureau was canceling the federal powers of Arpaio's deputies because of the racial-profiling findings.

"Sheriff Joe Arpaio's current procedure for checking illegals and restraining them from entering our county seems to be appropriate and should be continued without interference or threats," Knadler wrote.

Even an accused maniac like Knadler has his heroes.

I met this rich slob at a Christmas  party for single stick / prime time inc in north phx near deer valley road / rose garden and 19th ave a few years ago. he had an Asian lady with him at the party who was not his wife. she was an asian escort or a hooker. what a greedy loser he was. just goes to show  you that having lots of money dont make a person happy or sane.  besides you cant off your wife and get away with it anyway.

Let me guess Jason, all people with more $ than you are 'a$$holes'.  

If you can spare a moment or two (I realize your busy playing video games in the basement of your parent's house where you live), maybe you can take the initiative and 'do work', -you remember work, -right?

 having lots of money is fine with me but this guy was pompous  asshole when  I met him at the single stick / prime time Christmas party and he was a loud drunk with an Asian escort hooker. thats a loser where im from. besides the old  fart is 74 years old, he will die soon enough from old age. so why was he so greedy with his money? and why kill anyone ever unless they are trying to kill you first?

Nice touch there mister.  You support the Sheriff who is keeping you safe?  but who is keeping your wife safe from you?  This is so typical of the bigotry that has been the problem for so long in this state.  The writer mentions that the sheriff is so good fighting local crime...did this guy fall off the Sheriff's radar?  LOL.

Just what is it with the Flaccid Fool? I mean, the old fuck nut attracts criminals from every angle of the far right? From potential wife killers to neo-Nazis. Every law abiding American should be concerned.
