The neonatal doctor charged with hiring hitmen on the dark web to maim a co-worker and kidnap and torture his estranged wife in a plot to win her back is expected to strike a deal with federal prosecutors next week.

Dr. Ronald Ilg, 55, of Spokane, Washington, previously pleaded not guilty to a slew of charges including cyberstalking, witness tampering, and attempted kidnapping.

Last week, his attorney, Carl Oreskovtich, inquired as to whether a court would soon be available if defense and prosecution could reach an agreement. A change of plea hearing is not scheduled for next Wednesday.

As recently as 2019, Ilg was a physician who treated infants as the chief medical director at a multi-state neonatology group in the northwest.

But his life began to fall apart in the spring of 2019, after co-workers filed behavior complaints against him and he was fired from his job in December 2020.

The previous spring his wife had filed for divorce, and after he lost his job he became erratic and obsessive, harassing her in an effort to win her back despite multiple restraining orders.

All the while Ilg was having a BDSM affair with a mistress, which involved a sex-slave contract signed in blood and a sex-dungeon bunker buried on his property.

In the months after he was fired, prosecutors allege Ilg tried pay hitmen on the dark web over $50,000 to give a 'significant beating' to a former co-worker and to kidnap his wife and inject her with heroin until she agreed to drop divorce proceedings and return to him.

Ilg was connected to the solicitations and transactions - which he conducted under the username Scar215 - by a team of British journalists investigating dark web activity. He was arrested in April 2021.

A user named Scar215 posted on a dark web murder-for-hire website in February of 2020. The user requested that somebody break into a woman's home to deliver a 'significant beating' to her, specifically asking they 'injure both hands significantly or break the hands.'

Scar215 said about $2,000 in Bitcoin had been placed in an escrow
