A TEXAS dentist was murdered by a hitman hired by her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend in a crime that shocked the nation.
Hitman Kristopher Love was arrested for the shooting of Dr. Kendra Hatcher sentenced to death after chilling images revealed Brenda Delgado’s conspiracy.
The 35-year-old pediatric dentist was shot dead in the garage of her Dallas apartment building in 2015.
Her boyfriend Ricardo Paniagua’s ex-girlfriend, Delgado, was found guilty of the assassination attempt in 2019 and sentenced to life in prison.
Delgado was arrested in Mexico in 2016 after he was on the run and was on the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted list, NBC News reported.
Police found their connection to the murder after a black Jeep that they borrowed from a friend was pictured at the scene of Hatcher’s murder.
Delgado’s friend Jose Luis-Ortiz came forward when police released the pictures and said he loaned the car to Delgado.
According to investigators, Paniagua had ended a two-year relationship with Delgado months before the dentist was shot.
Delgado then became obsessed with Hatcher, following her around looking for someone to do the hit-and-run.
She tracked Hatcher’s cell phone and persuaded Love to commit the murder in exchange for drugs and money.
The despised ex then instructed Love and getaway driver Crystal Cortes to rob and kill Hatcher to make it look like a random crime.
Investigators found a picture in Cortes’ phone the day after the murder with $500 bills folded in the shape of a heart.
Paniagua was waiting at Hatcher’s apartment when Love approached her and shot her in the head.
The gun was eventually found hidden in his car.
Cortes was sentenced to 35 years in prison after testifying against Delgado.
