Florida woman mistakenly killed in murder-for-hire plot sparked by love triangle

Florida police have arrested three individuals in relation to the murder of a woman whose body was discovered on 9 January.

Zengotita-Torres was bound and suffocated with garbage bags, Gibson said. That woman, who was never harmed, and Zengotita-Torres, who was married and the mother of a 14-year-old boy, were co-workers.

An utility laborer found the assemblage of Janice Marie Zengotita-Torres Monday morning, a day after she was first detailed missing by her family, My News 13 revealed.

"I don't say that lightly, that this woman lost her life for no reason".

According to investigators, Ishnar Lopez-Ramos, 35, allegedly hired Glorianmarie Quinones-Montes, 22, and Alexis Ramos-Rivera, 22, to kill a woman in a relationship with a man she loved.

The sheriff's office says the "murder-for-hire" became a case of "mistaken identity" and that the victim was not the intended target.

However, things turned awry when Lopez-Ramos, Ramos-Rivera, and Quinones-Montes apparently mistook Zengotita-Torres for the intended target. Authorities found her body on Ormond Beach days later, miles away from her home.

Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson amid a news meeting Friday told correspondents the suspects purposefully focused on the 42-year-old Kissimmee inhabitant due to an instance of mixed up character. After kidnapping her, they drove to a nearby bank where they supposedly withdrew money using Zengotita-Torres's ATM card, the sheriff's office said. "This mother, this wife, this daughter - for no reason, at all".

It wasn't until the suspects took the woman to an apartment in Orlando that they allegedly realized they had abducted the wrong person.

"All three confirmed that this was a murder-for-hire and that the victim was mistakenly targeted and murdered", Gibson told WFTV.

"I get emotional because it just touches me so deeply that one of our citizens was killed in such a manner over a mistaken identification, and in the end it appears to be a lovers' triangle", he said.

Following a progression of exchanges, police captured Lopez-Ramos, who drove them to the next two suspects for the situation.

The three suspects are each facing first-degree murder charges.

The three suspects, all of whom moved to Florida from Puerto Rico on December 26, told authorities it was a botched murder-for-hire plot in which Zengotita-Torres was mistakenly targeted.
