MCKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) - Three people are in police custody for the death of a McKinney man found in his home.

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

Police say 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," explains 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 say Pokai 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 Pokai and Brockway hired Rosser with killing Moore and that the motive was money.

Police believe those marital problems led Pokai and her friend Stephen Brockway to hire Ronald Rosser to kill Moore.
