3 arrested in Florida murder-for-hire plot in which wrong woman was killed

A woman's body was found Monday in Florida's Ormond Beach and later identified as 42-year-old Janice Marie Zengotita-Torres, who had been reported missing in Osceola County.

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 auto and drove her to an apartment near The Mall at Millenia in Orlando.

Ramos-Rivera and Montes kept on utilizing Zengotita-Torres' cards after they dumped her body, provoking experts to stake out ATMs in the zone. She had been beaten and suffocated.

Gibson said the suspects followed Zengotita-Torres after she left work at Ross on Sunday night and accosted her when she got home.
