Lithia, Florida -- The man hired by a woman and her lover to kill her husband was found guilty by a jury on Aug. 3.

Luis Angel Lopez, 24, was hired by Cristie Bottorff and her lover, Jerry Bottorff, to kill her husband at the time, Thomas Sehorne.

Sehorne was killed at his home on June 7, 2007 in Lithia.

The U.S. State Attorney's Office says both Cristie and Jerry admitted to their involvement and pled guilty to all charges on July 9, 2012 and testified against Lopez during his trial. They also testified against Michael Garcia who they say served as a middleman between them and Lopez.
