"This woman lost her life for no reason".

She chose to contract Alexis Ramos-Rivera and his sweetheart, Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, to slaughter the lady, yet they confused Zengotita-Torres for their objective and stole her.

Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson told local media on Friday night that Ishnar Marie Lopez-Ramos was distraught that the man she loved had been seeing another woman, so she hired a couple to track the woman down and kill her, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Analysts trust they did in the end acknowledge they'd grabbed the wrong individual yet "proceeded with their arrangement of murder and tied the casualty with zip ties, and after that her head in channel tape and junk sacks", Gibson said.

Investigators say the suspects continued to rob and kill Zengotita-Torres even after they realized she was the wrong target. That woman, who was never harmed, and Zengotita-Torres, who was married and the mother of a 14-year-old boy, were co-workers.

Gibson said the couple tracked down a woman they believed to be the target as she left a Ross Dress For Less store at a mall in Kissimmee, near Orlando, on Sunday night.

Zengotita-Torres passed on of suffocation.

"Every one of the three affirmed this was a murder for enlist and that the casualty was erroneously focused on and killed", the Sheriff said. He said the three of them dumped Torres' body 91 miles away in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Ormond Beach.

Following a series of transactions, police nabbed Lopez-Ramos, who led them to the other two suspects in the case.

The kidnappers then allegedly forced Zengotita-Torres to give them her ATM card and information so they could withdraw money from her account. Ramos and his girlfriend were later arrested at a hotel near Orlando, Gibson said.

"This was a murder for hire", said Osceola County Sheriff Russell Gibson.

Gibson became emotional during a news conference, choking up as he talked about the victim, who came to Kissimmee with her husband, teenage son and mother.

Ramos-Rivera, Montes and Lopez-Ramos have all been accused of first-degree kill.

"The heinous murder of one of our own citizens will not be tolerated in Osceola County", Gibson said.
