After one attempted hit fell through when the gunman missed Murray, his wife and Lovell hired Kirk Portious to carry out the murder for $3,500.
Appearing for the prosecution Lovell denied he was the mastermind of the plot:“That’s not what I do,” said Lovell, who admitted he had other lovers while his wife was pregnant with his fourth child.
The erstwhile lover struck a plea deal admitting guilt to second-degree murder in exchange for a sentence of 15 years to life.

“I suggested for her to get a divorce, but she said it wasn’t that easy because there were too many bills,” Lovell said.
