Doesn't matter who bought the gun, doesn't matter who pulled the trigger. They are all quilty. An eye for eye. Why is the death penalty only applicable if a police officer is killed. Why are they special.

I'm for convicting the whole lot (going by what I've read) except for one (improbable) possibility; I suppose (from these so-called 'facts') a jury could decide that the boyfriend didn't want anything to do with it, and didn't think the girl would follow up. After she did hire someone, the boyfriend kept his mouth shut....a heavy crime worth time, but not murder. But I seriously doubt that happened. More likely, the boyfriend 'found' the triggerman for the girlfriend. THAT, to me is murder.
However, the way the story is written, there is that loop-hole. As quick as they put this case together, I'm pretty sure they'll get to the bottom. Right now, it looks like everyone is 'confessing' 16 different Cover My-A versions. Thats a snap for good detectives. Just eliminate the holes as they come up.

"After she did hire someone, the boyfriend kept his mouth shut....a heavy crime worth time, but not murder........."

To be clear, I mean maybe the boyfriend didn't know until 'after the fact'. If he kept his mouth shut knowing they might go through with it, again, murder.
But like I said, that whole scenario is a stretch, to say the least.
