The murder trial for a woman accused of hiring a hitman to kill her ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend is set to begin Monday.

Brenda Delgado's murder trial will get underway after jury selection began last moth.

Delgado is accused of hiring a hitman to kill dentist Kendra Hatcher, who was shot and killed 4 years ago in the parking garage of her Uptown Dallas apartment building.

The hitman, Kristopher Love, was found guilty this past October and sentenced to death.

His getaway driver, Crystal Cortes, pleaded guilty and expected to be sentenced to 35 years in prison in exchange for her testimony against Love and Delgado. She faces sentencing later.

Delgado was extradited to face trial and because of an agreement with Mexico, she cannot face the death penalty.
