Man Accused With Murder-For-Hire Plot On Veteran Sentenced To Life

Daytona Beach, FL –Â One man charged with first degree murder for hiring a hitman to kill a Deltona veteran who was set to testify against him learns he’ll spend the rest of his life behind bars.

It was yesterday (January 10th) that 28-year-old Kelsey McFoley was delivered the mandatory sentence of life behind bars by Judge Matt Foxman for hiring a hitman to kill 60-year-old Carlos Cruz-Echevarria on Veteran’s Day (November 11th) 2017.

McFoley hired a man by the name of Benjamin Bascom to kill Cruz-Echevarria so he couldn’t testify against him in a 2017 road rage incident, with Melissa Rios Roque acting as the getaway driver.

In that 2017 case, McFoley began to chase down Cruz-Echevarria after he went around McFoley’s vehicle.

As he chased him, Cruz-Echevarria watched as McFoley pulled a gun out of his glovebox and pointed it at him, that’s when Cruz-Echevarria called police.
