Veterinarian - Boyfriend Murder Solicitation Arrest

An established veterinarian and her boyfriend are charged with trying to hire a hitman to kill their exes.

Valerie McDaniel, 48, and Leon Jacob, 39, are charged with solicitation of capital murder.

Eyewitness News has learned the couple, who live together in a high-rise in River Oaks, are accused of trying to hire someone to kill their former significant others.

Jacob was charged with stalking and assaulting his ex-girlfriend earlier this year. He allegedly wanted her killed so she could not testify against him.

McDaniel and her ex-husband finalized their divorce in August of 2016. They share a daughter.

According to charging information, Jacob and McDaniel were ready to pay more than $10,000. The hitman turned out to be an undercover Houston police officer. They were arrested Friday.
