Secret, FBI video was played Friday at the murder conspiracy trial that involves a former Chicago police officer.

The recording outlines of ex-cop Steven Mandell and Gary Engel on October 25th, 2012, allegedly making final preparations.

Prosecutors claim they plotted to kidnap successful businessman Steve Campbell, extort money from him, then chop him up with a meat cleaver in a so-called torture and death chamber at a building at 5308 west Devon on the northwest side.

Prosecutors say Mandell and Engel planned to kidnap Campbell by posing as cops ‘arresting’ him on a drug warrant.
