(DALLAS) — The man accused of killing a Dallas dentist last month has been arrested for capital murder and the woman accused of hiring him to commit the crime is at-large, police said on Saturday.

Kristopher Love, 31, was arrested Friday for the murder of Dr. Kendra Hatcher, the Dallas Police Department said. The 35-year-old dentist was shot execution-style in the parking garage of her apartment complex on September 2.

Love was in possession of the suspected murder weapon when he was taken into custody, police said.

A warrant was also issued for the arrest of 33-year-old Brenda Delgado, who was accused of hiring Love to kill Hatcher. The arrest warrant for Delgado is also for capital murder, police said.

Love was charged with capital murder and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, police said, and taken to the Dallas County Jail on a $2.5 million bond.

Love has admitted to his role in the robbery which resulted in Hatcher’s death, according to his arrest warrant affidavit.

Days after the September shooting, a third suspect, Crystal Cortes, 23, was arrested in connection with the murder. Cortes allegedly admitted that she conspired with Delgado to “rob the complainant for remuneration which resulted in her death,” according to the arrest warrant affidavit for Love.

The attorneys for Love and Cortes could not be immediately reached for comment.
