Apparently, the two suspects charged with robbing and killing Zengotita-Torres were hired by a woman named Ishnar Lopez Ramos, who allegedly wanted to murder a woman involved with the same man as she was, police said.

Investigators believe Zengotita-Torres, the married mother of a 14-year-old boy, was kidnapped and killed instead of the intended victim.

The target worked at the same store as Zengotita-Torres, and she reportedly bore a close resemblance to her.

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

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".

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.

Authorities late Friday announced three arrests in the death of 42-year-old Janice Zengotita-Torres, of Kissimmee.

Reports state that the killer duo forced Zengotita-Torres into the trunk of her auto, tortured her for her ATM card, and then suffocated and killed her with garbage bags.

They then drove to a nearby bank where they allegedly withdrew money from the woman's account using her ATM card, according to the sheriff's office. The three suspects dumped Torres' body 91 miles away in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Ormond Beach. "This mother, this wife, this daughter, for no reason at all", Gibson said, WESH reported.

"I didn't do anything", she said.

One station reported that Gibson choked up as he announced the arrests.

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. At some point during the kidnapping, he said the suspects realized they had the wrong woman, opting to nevertheless go through with the homicide.

"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, according to WFTV.
