Advice on fixed-price payment when the job is done wrong

So I've open a job last week, and hired someone to do a project for me. The contractor ended up not delivering the work (she delivered scarse material, about 15% of what she was supposed to turn in), late, and even what she delivered needed to be heavily revised. I ended up paying her fraction of the agreed quote, obviously.
Now, this had put me in a bad predicament, as I was on a tight deadline with my own client. I ended up having to hire someone else, who agreed to all instructions and conditions before starting the work. So her deadline came, and she sent me complete work, but the quality was just awful. I had to spend an extra 4 hours correcting each line of the 38 pages document.
So my question is, how do I handle this one? Should I pay her the entire amount even though it was filled with errors on each line?
