HOUSTON - Attorney George Parnham announced that he has rejoined the defense team for Leon Jacob in the murder-for-hire case.
Jacob, 40, is accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill his ex-girlfriend.
Police said Jacob and Valerie McDaniel tried to have their exes killed by hiring a hit man. It turns out the man they were dealing with was an undercover police officer.
The pair was reportedly willing to pay $10,000 for each murder plus two Cartier watches.
Investigators said Jacob wanted to kill his ex-girlfriend. He was recently charged with stalking her.
McDaniel, his girlfriend, committed suicide by jumping from her River Oaks high rise.
Parnham quit the case last week when Jacob hired another lawyer. Parnham said the family asked him to return to the case.
