Russell Gibson, Osceola County Sheriff, said, "This was a murder for hire".
The pair allegedly mistook Zengotita-Torres for the target, abducted her and later killed her, Gibson said.
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. Reports state that the killer duo forced Zengotita-Torres into the trunk of her vehicle, tortured her for her ATM card, and then suffocated and killed her with garbage bags.
Her killers drove 80 miles and dumped her body in Volusia County, the station reported.
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.
Gibson said that's when Ramos and Rivera realized they had abducted the wrong person, but made a decision to continue with their plan.

According to local authorities, 35-year-old Ishnar Lopez-Ramos hired Alexis Ramos-Rivera and Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, both 22, to kill a coworker who was dating her former partner.
The three women charged in her death all came to Central Florida from Puerto Rico in late December, deputies said.
Investigators believe Zengotita-Torres, the married mother of a 14-year-old boy, was kidnapped and killed instead of the intended victim.
Analysts trust they did in the end acknowledge they'd grabbed the wrong individual yet "proceeded with their arrangement of murder and tied the casualty with zip ties, and after that her head in channel tape and junk sacks", Gibson said. Detectives were able to identify the suspects after Ramos used the victim's debit card.
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. Gibson said she was wearing Zengotita-Torres' clothing when she was arrested. "This mother, this wife, this daughter - for no reason, at all". She led investigators to the other two suspects in the case.
Ramos-Rivera, Montes and Lopez-Ramos have all been accused of first-degree kill.
