DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A Dallas County jury has found Kristopher Love guilty of capital murder in the 2015 murder of Doctor Kendra Hatcher

Kristopher Love was found guilty by a jury Thursday afternoon.

The state says Love was the hired hit man who killed Doctor Kendra Hatcher in the garage of her apartment complex.

The defense attempted to lay the blame on a co-defendant who cut a deal to avoid a capital murder trial. Defense attorney Paul Johnson says none of the evidence proves Love killed Hatcher...but there is plenty blame for Crystal Cortes.

Prosecutor Kevin Brooks reminded the jury of the jailhouse phone call that was recorded in which Love admitted he should have gotten rid of the murder weapon, which was found in his car.

The case will now move to a punishment phase that will determine whether Love gets the death penalty.
