As if murder-for-hire clearly wasn’t enough, Leon Jacob is facing another criminal charge.
The River Oaks man, whose girlfriend killed herself last spring after both faced charges in tabloid-worthy murder-for-hire schemes, is now facing an additional charge for solicitation of aggravated kidnapping.
According to authorities, Jacob approached J. Duran for help with kidnapping his ex-girlfriend Megan Verikas.
Montrose veterinarian Valerie McDaniel jumped to her death after her arrest last March following an undercover police officer bust of the duo’s alleged activities.
Court documents show Jacob intended for his ex-girlfriend to be kidnapped, threatening to kill her if she became uncooperative.
A court date for the new charge is Nov. 30.
During an interview with ABC13, Jacob said he “was not a monster.”
This is a developing story.
