Woman in murder plot of dentist Kendra Hatcher added to FBI's most wanted
A fugitive on the run for more than six months after allegedly plotting the murder of a popular Dallas dentist has been added to the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list — with a $100,000 reward for her capture.
Brenda Delgado, 33, is wanted for capital murder in the killing of Kendra Hatcher, 35, on Sept. 2. Hatcher was found fatally shot in the parking garage of her upscale apartment building, with evidence pointing to a murder-for-hire plot, police said.
But there was a further love triangle twist, authorities say.
It was Delgado who orchestrated the slaying because she was jealous Hatcher was dating her ex-boyfriend and had recently been introduced to his parents in San Francisco, the FBI in Dallas said.

Delgado, a dental hygiene student, had ended her two-year relationship with her dermatologist boyfriend, Ricardo Paniagua, earlier in 2015, according to Dallas police.
As part of the hit job, investigators said, Delgado offered another woman, Crystal Cortes, $500 to serve as a getaway driver in what was supposed to be a robbery. Instead, another accomplice working with Cortes gunned down Hatcher.
Cortes was charged with capital murder and was arrested two days after the killing.
Her accomplice, Kristopher Love, admitted to his role in the robbery, according to an affidavit. He was also indicted for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
