Jennifer Lynne Faith, an Oak Cliff native, pled guilty on Monday to plan the killing, according to US Attorney Chad E. Meacham for the Northern District of Texas.
A Grand jury indicted her for tampering with evidence in February 2021. They added a penalty of using a commerce clause in the conduct of murder-for-hire in September 2021, which includes a potential death penalty.
Authorities didn’t take long to figure out that Jennifer had been in continuous communication with Darrin Lopez, a high school lover with whom she’d started an ongoing affair. She texted him 14,000 times, as per call logs.
On October 9, Lopez went from Tennessee to Dallas, where he reportedly waited for the couple to leave to stroll their dog. He left in a black sport utility vehicle after shooting Faith seven times.
