Janice Zengotita-Torres, 42, was leaving a Ross Dress for Less near Kissimmee last Sunday night when the suspected contract killers - Alexis Ramos-Rivera, 22, and his girlfriend Glorianmarie Quinones Montes - followed her home and forced Zengotita-Torres into the back of her own vehicle and drove her to an apartment near The Mall at Millenia in Orlando. So she hired Alexis Ramos, 35, and his girlfriend, Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, 22, to kill the woman. That woman, who was never harmed, and Zengotita-Torres, who was married and the mother of a 14-year-old boy, were co-workers.

According to investigators, Ishnar Marie Lopez-Ramos was looking to murder a woman who was involved with a man she also had romantic feelings for, according to Fox 35.

"However, the suspects continued with their plan of murder and tied the victim with zip ties and then (covered) her head in duct tape and garbage bags", Gibson said.

She made a decision to hire Alexis Ramos-Rivera and his girlfriend, Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, to kill the woman, but they mistook Zengotita-Torres for their target and abducted her instead. She had been beaten and suffocated.

Investigators say Janice Zengotita-Torrres, 42, was killed after being mistaken for the target in a murder-for-hire plot in Osceola County, Fla.

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.

The three women charged in her death all came to Central Florida from Puerto Rico in late December, deputies said.

"The suspects showed no regard for this victim, causing her to die from suffocation because the garbage bags were wrapped around her head", Gibson said.

Zengotita-Torres' vehicle was later found in Orange County, Gibson said.

The sheriff said investigators ed the intended victim and offered protective services, but she declined.

"All three confirmed that this was a murder-for-hire and that the victim was mistakenly targeted and murdered", Gibson said. Gibson said she was wearing Zengotita-Torres' clothing when she was arrested.

They are being held in the Osceola County Jail on murder charges.

Lopez, the woman who arranged the plot, was arrested on Friday when she tried to use an ATM card.
