Suspects in murder for hire case denied bond

Authorities wrong woman killed in botched murder-for-hire

Authorities wrong woman killed in botched murder-for-hire

But, they soon discovered it was the wrong woman, 42-year-old Janice Marie Zengotita Torres. It was someone else.

Zengotita-Torres was an innocent victim of a truly heinous murder, according to Osceola County Sheriff Russell Gibson. The only similarity between Zengotita-Torres and the intended target was that they both worked at the same store, the report said. They forced her into the trunk of her own vehicle. They drove her to an apartment in Orlando.

Gibson said that's when Ramos and Rivera realized they had abducted the wrong person, but chose to continue with their plan.

Sheriff Gibson said, "However, the suspects continued with their plan of murder, and tied the victim with the zip ties and then her head in duct tape and garbage bags". She died of suffocation. Authorities found her body on Ormond Beach days later, miles away from her home. Gibson said they abandoned the vehicle in Orange County.

One station reported that Gibson choked up as he announced the arrests. Gibson said she was wearing Zengotita-Torres' clothing when she was arrested.

And last Sunday night, detectives say they kidnapped a woman who they thought was that rival.

MUR's financial leverage ratio is 1.05, which indicates that the company's asset base is primarily funded by equity capital. The investor is now holding $2.46 million shares due in part to a decrease of 1.44 million new shares in their portfolio.

Gibson said the suspects had moved to central Florida from Puerto Rico in December. He described it as one of the most freakish and heinous crimes he's investigated during his time in law enforcement.

The sheriff said investigators contacted the intended victim and offered protective services, but she declined. "This mother, this wife, this daughter - for no reason, at all", Gibson said.

Lopez-Ramos, Ramos-Rivera and Quinones-Montes have been booked in Osceola County Jail and face charges of premeditated first-degree murder, according to jail records. Their criminal history was not immediately available. The sheriff's office reportedly said the "murder-for-hire" case became a case of "mistaken identity", according to WESH.

All three suspects were denied bond Saturday during their first appearances before a judge.
