TEXAS – A family mess narrowly ends in a deadly tragedy that could have claimed the lives of four people in Honduras.

Disturbing details were revealed in court about the case of a Honduran man who planned a revenge extreme. From Texas he was trying to order the execution of people living in Honduras.

Santos Orellana Hernández, 47, will spend the next 8 years and three months in federal prison.

The Honduran man was sentenced to 100 months in prison after pleading guilty to trying to hire a hit man to kill his mother-in-law and brother-in-law as revenge for his wife divorcing him.

According to details exposed in court, Hernández offered about $8,000 to Gustavo Ramírez, who lived in Honduras, so that he would commit the crime not only of his mother-in-law and brother-in-law, but of two more people.

Orellana Hernández reportedly ordered that the executions be carried out after April of last year.

According to the authorities, when he was already detained, Hernández intimidated the person he had contacted to commit the crime so that he would withdraw the testimonies that accused him.

Hernández lived in Port Arthur, a town located in southeast Texas.
