Janice Marie Zengotita-Torres 42, of Kissimmee Florida was killed last week when she was mistaken for the intended victim in a love triangle murder-for-hire plot

Florida police say three suspects are in jail and an innocent woman is dead following a botched murder-for-hire plot orchestrated by a scorned lover.

They allegedly bound the woman with zip ties, beat her and suffocated her with garbage bags. He said she moved to Osceola County from Puerto Rico a year ago and lived with her husband, her 14-year-old son and her mother.

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

Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson said Ishnar Lopez Ramos hired Alexis Ramos Rivera and his girlfriend, Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, to kill a romantic rival, but they mistook Janice Zengotita-Torres, 42, of Kissimmee, for the intended victim and killed her.

The sheriff's office added that the suspects did not realize that they had abducted the wrong person until they reached her house in Orlando, however, even after that they continued with their alleged plan. The three suspects dumped Torres' body 91 miles away in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Ormond Beach. The only similarity between Zengotita-Torres and the intended target was that they both worked at the same store, the report said.

All three suspects allegedly gave full confessions and face charges of premeditated first-degree murder, Gibson said.

Investigators say that Ishnar Lopez-Ramos 35, hired Glorianmarie Quinones-Montes and Alexis Ramos-Rivera both 22 to kill a woman who was in a relationship with a man she had romantic feelings for

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. "This mother, this wife, this daughter, for no reason at all", Sheriff Russell Gibson told the news station.

Ramos was arrested Thursday night while using Zengotita-Torres' card to withdraw cash from an ATM in the area, according to authorities.

Lopez Ramos was tracked down through the stolen bank card and was caught while making a withdrawal with it, all while reportedly wearing the victim's clothes.

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

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. However, at some point during the attack, they discovered that they had picked up the wrong person but still made a decision to move forward with the murder.
