SHOSHONE, Idaho (AP) - Police say two men shot and left a man for dead in the Idaho desert after his girlfriend asked them to help her end their relationship problems.

Police have charged Martizabell Murillo, 30, of Filer, with ordering the attempted murder of her boyfriend, 29-year-old Francisco Javier Bravo-Martinez, according to The Times-News (https://bit.ly/1TqAscy).

Bravo-Martinez was left for dead in the desert southwest of Shoshone after the Jan. 23 shooting. He survived and is recovering from his injuries.

Murillo was arraigned in Lincoln County Magistrate Court Feb. 10 and is being held in Blaine County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday.

Murillo is the third person to be arrested in connection to Bravo-Martinez’s shooting. A fourth suspect, Antonio Jacob Gallegos, 21, of Twin Falls, is still at-large and wanted on a $1 million warrant.

Police say David Gonzales Ceballos, who was arrested last week in connection to the shooting, told investigators Murillo asked him to “take care of” her boyfriend because he was abusive and she was done with the relationship. Murillo had told police she was kidnapped and threatened by two men the same day Bravo-Martinez was shot.

Prosecutors say three men kidnapped Bravo-Martinez over a $3,000 debt before shooting him execution-style and leaving him to die. Bravo-Martinez survived and called police hours later.
