A Thai woman and two Americans are in police custody for the death of a McKinney man found in his home in Texas.

The woman, Chansamorn Pokai, and her friend Stephen Brockway are charged with hiring Ronald Rosser to murder her husband, 66-year-old Richard Moore, two weeks ago.

The US media quoted police as saying that the couple had an unhealthy relationship, and officers had been to their home as recently as January to hear complaints that each had been unfaithful.

“This was not a healthy relationship,” explained Assistant McKinney Police Chief Randy Roland. “They’d had a lot of ongoing and off going strife.”

Investigators had made multiple calls to the couple’s home in recent months. “The latest call that we had was in January I believe of this year, and it was regarding infidelity. We have uncovered that both sides had accused each other of being unfaithful.”

Police said Chansamorn reported finding her husband alone in their home, located in the 8700 block of La Quinta Lane, with multiple gunshot wounds.
Detectives were later able to piece together the woman and Brockway hired Rosser with killing Moore and that the motive was money.
Police believed those marital problems led the murder.

“Part of our ongoing investigation to find out, was it a romantic relationship, how involved were they, when did that friendship start,” said Chief Roland.
