The case has been “cold” for years, until a clue emerges that led to the culprits.
A man kills his ex-wife, but instead kills the woman’s sister, who spends the rest of his life behind bars.
Snowhomish County (Washington, USA) court sentenced Kevin Lewis to life without parole. In 2017, the subject hired his cousin Gerard Phelps to “get out of the way” of his ex-partner and mother of their three children.
According to court documents cited by the Everett Herald newspaper, the defendant, 19, paid $ 2,400.
On September 20 of that year, Phelps, armed with his friend and accomplice Alexis Hall, arrived at a house south of Everett, which Louis pointed out, according to the killer’s testimony about his salary. , He never told her that the target was his ex-wife and only gave him the address where he had to go to commit the crime.
Upon arrival, Phelps knocked on the front door of the house, and Alisha Canales-Meguere, who was looking after her children at her sister’s house, opened the door.
Authorities say the 24-year-old woman was shot five times before fleeing the scene with Hale. That day, Louise’s ex-wife was on a business trip to New York.
After nearly a year of investigation, the case remained unresolved, and in August of the following year, agents received a tip: Hale had told his friends he had been hired to kill someone on York Road. So they were both arrested.
In July 2020, Phelps pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and was sentenced to 31 years in prison. Hale was sentenced to 15 years in prison on the same charge.
