Samia, 43, and Stillwell, 50, did surveillance on Lee before contacting her pretending to be potential clients, the prosecutor said. While returning from a trip to the countryside outside of Manila, Samia pulled out a .22-caliber gun and killed Lee by shooting her twice in the face as she sat in the back seat of a van, he said.
Lee's body was found on a pile of garbage on the side of the road, Egan said. After being paid, her killers were ordered back to the United States, where they were arrested in 2015.
An investigation turned up a picture on Stillwell's phone of a bloody head wrapped in a towel that was taken around the time of Lee's death, authorities said. He also admitted being behind the wheel of the van when she was shot, they added.

One big difference between the previous case :
and this new case :
Is the price. In the earlier case, the cake cost $400+, which makes one more sympathetic to the buyer. In the new case, the cake only costs $48, which makes one more sympathetic to the seller. You get what you pay for.
Vega Blossom was waiting in line at her favorite bakery when she overheard an older woman standing behind her say â€œLetâ€™s hope this fat bitch doesnâ€™t buy all the cupcakes!â€�
The 19-year-old had originally planned on buying only six cupcakes, but then decided to purchase the shopâ€™s entire stock of 20 to teach the rude onlooker a lesson.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte isnâ€™t ruling out that the US might be angry at him, and consider a threat (hence he thinks the CIA might assassinate him) for his decision to procure weapons from China and Russia, after Washington refused to supply Manila with arms.
The Philippines has been seeking modern weapons and small arms to step up combat against ISIS-linked Islamists, ever since Duterte assumed office in June 2016. However, Washingtonâ€™s refusal to sell assault rifles, over concerns about the countryâ€™s human rights record amid the ongoing war on drugs, has forced Duterte to seek new suppliers. Manila, which has long depended on the US for weapons, turned to China and Russia to procure military arms.
â€œThe fact is, the Americans really do not honor their word,â€� Rodrigo Duterte said on Thursday, explaining his decision to look for alternative partners. Beijing and Moscow answered the call, even agreeing to provide some of the weapons for free, the Philippine leader told a group of farmers and fishermen gathered at a presidential palace reception.
â€œSo I went to China... to ask [Chinese President Xi Jinping] to help us: â€˜I need armsâ€™,â€� Duterte recalled during his long speech. â€œXi Jinping said, â€˜No problem. Do not pay me, it's all yours.â€™"
â€œSo I went to Russia... â€˜I came here to ask for your help! It's okay, I'll give it to you, freeâ€™,â€� Duterte paraphrased President Vladimir Putinâ€™s alleged response during their meeting last year.
