Default TX WF, 46 was shot & stabbed to death over love triangle gone bad: whiteys hired negro hit man


Collin County Woman’s Murder-For-Hire Killer Sentenced To Life In Prison Without Parole
September 4, 2019 at 2:28 pm

McKINNEY, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A Collin County jury found Delvin Powell, 40, of Plano, guilty of capital murder and sentenced him to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

“The victim was truly beloved by her family. The jury’s verdict brings justice for the family and guarantees this brutal murderer can never harm an innocent person again,” said Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis following the sentencing.

On September 20, 2017, the victim’s adult daughter found her mother, Kelli Underwood, deceased inside her home due to multiple gunshot and stab wounds.

Powell and an accomplice were identified by name and description as having been seen with Underwood at her home on the last day she was known to be alive.

After many witness interviews and review of cell phone evidence, Texas Ranger Bruce Sherman determined that Powell and the accomplice were hired by two other individuals to carry out the murder.

All four were ultimately charged in the murder for hire scheme.

A Princeton woman who was found dead at her home in September was killed in a murder-for-hire plot over a love triangle involving her boss and the mother of his child, authorities say.

Delvin Ajair Powell, 38; Kadie Elizabeth Robinson, 28; Robert Samuel Veal, 35; and Ronnie Keith Welborn, 45, have been arrested in connection with the case and were being held at the Collin County jail Thursday.

Kelli Underwood, 46, was found dead Sept. 20 at the home in the 1100 block of Park View Drive. According to a probable-cause affidavit, she had a head wound and five spent .22-caliber cartridges were found near her body.

The Texas Rangers noted that there was evidence of a physical confrontation and said neighbors reported that police had been to Underwood's home twice Sept. 16 after an alarm went off. One witness saw two men at the home at the time.
