Dallas Trial Begins for Man Accused in Death of Dentist
DALLAS (AP) — Dallas County jurors are listening to 911 calls and other testimony on the opening day of the capital murder trial of a man accused in the shooting death of a pediatric dentist.
Jurors in the trial of 34-year-old Kristopher Love listened Monday to a 911 recording of a caller saying he saw a Jeep speed away from a Dallas parking garage and then saw the body of 35-year-old Kendra Hatcher on the ground.
Prosecutors say Love was hired to kill Hatcher, who was shot at her Dallas apartment complex in September 2015.
They say Hatcher's death was orchestrated by Brenda Delgado, the former girlfriend of the man Hatcher was dating at the time.
Delgado is charged with capital murder and awaits trial. A third person, the suspected getaway driver, also is being held on a capital murder charge.
