 American man hired a couple for $2,400 to kill his ex-wife and sister-in-law, who was killed by mistake

A 31-year-old man in the United States paid $2,400 to hire a couple to assassinate his ex-wife, so the teenage couple knocked at the door of the mans ex-wife in the middle of the night with a gun and shot the woman who opened the door in a hurry. What they didnt know was that the dead man was not his ex-wife, but his sister who looked like her.

According to the Daily Mail on April 9, 24-year-old Alisa Canales was shot dead in Washington State in September 2017. The target of the murder was her sister Amanda.

Amanda and her 31-year-old ex-husband Kevin Lewis had been married for eight years and had three children. Amanda sued for divorce after a long period of domestic violence. Kevin threatened to kill his ex-wife if he did not get custody and alimony for the children.

In August 2017, Amanda was granted custody of three children, and Kevin had to pay them $800 a month for maintenance.

Kevin hired his then 19-year-old cousin Geraldon Phelps and his 17-year-old girlfriend to order them to kill Amanda. In return, Kevin paid the couple $2400 on the spot.

At 1:55 a.m. on the day of the incident, Gerraton and his girlfriend knocked on the door of Amandas residence. Because of their close appearance, they thought that Alisa who answered the door was her sister Amanda. They shot her several times and killed her. In fact, on the day of the incident, Amanda was on a business trip, and newly married Alisa stayed at her sisters home to help take care of the children.

Hours after the murder, Gerraton shared with the social media photographs of hundreds of dollars and wrote, Youll never guess what I did for the money.

On April 8, Kevin, Gerraton and their girlfriend were charged with murder.
