P. v. Rodriguez
In a murder-for-hire scheme, appellant Rudy Limon (Limon) paid appellant Dean Cairo Rodriguez (Rodriguez) $10,000 in cash to kill Sergio Reyes (Sergio). Limon was angry with Sergio, who was formerly his best friend, because soon after Limon and his former wife Celina Reyes (Celina) dissolved their marriage, Sergio secretly began seeing Celina and then married her. In April 2003, Rodriguez shot Sergio, but Sergio survived. In December 2003, Rodriguez murdered Sergio by approaching him as he sat in his Silverado truck (Silverado) and shooting him in the shoulder and through the head.
