Co-Defendants in Adam Anhang Murder-for-Hire Case Plead Not Guilty

Marcia Rijos Iris Vazquez and her boyfriend, Jose Rafael Ferrer Sosa, have plead “not guilty” in the murder-for-hire of Adam Anhang.  Marcia is the sister of Aurea Vazquez Rijos’ sister, Anhang’s estranged wife, who is alleged to have orchestrated Anhang’s brutal broad daylight murder on a busy intersection of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. 

The two were charged with conspiracy to use interstate electronic equipment (telephone), with the aim of killing allegedly commissioned by the Canadian businessman and online gambling entrepreneur.  Both entered their pleas before the federal magistrate in San Juan, Bruce McGiverin, late last week.

Aurea Vazquez Rijos was expected to be extradited back to the United States after her arrest on June 30.  She was en route from Italy with a stopover in Madrid, Spain, where authorities ultimately took her into custody. 

Vazquez Rijos has been living in Italy, which does not extradite wanted individuals back to the US if they are facing a potential death penalty.  Spain does have an extradition treaty with the United States.  She is currently imprisoned.

Anhang was gruesomely stabbed nearly two dozen times while walking with his soon-to-be ex-wife in 2005. The 32-year-old was pronounced dead on the scene.  Gambling911.com was the first media outlet to break the story.

A U.S. grand jury charged Vazquez in 2008 with offering a man $3 million to kill her husband.  Initially another individual who worked at the couple's Old San Juan restaurant was wrongfully charged with committing the murder.  Another man has been convicted of the murder and is currently serving a 65-year sentence.   

Vazquez Rijos once attempted to sue Anhang’s family members and his estate for $1 million. 

The Adam Anhang murder was profiled on NBC’s “Dateline”.
