Who is Claudia Resendiz-Florez ?
An Illinois mother, a mother of three, shot dead a man after he and his girlfriend refused to kiss her, authorities said.
Claudia Resendiz-Florez, 28, had just moved in with James P. Jones, 29, and his girlfriend at the Preserve Woodfield apartment complex in Rolling Meadows when a love triangle fatally exploded, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
The three had been drinking together Thursday night when Resendiz-Florez asked Jones for a kiss, to which he refused, instead of kissing his girlfriend.
Resendiz-Florez also asked Jones’s girlfriend for a kiss, who also declined, prosecutors said at a bond hearing Saturday.
Resendiz-Flores demanded that he kiss her again, which he again denied, infuriating her, prosecutors said, according to the Sun-Times.wikipedia
She then she grabbed Jones’ gun, hid it under a sofa cushion in the house, and pointed it at Jones. Prosecutors said Jones tried to lower the gun when he saw that she had released the safety, but he was able to raise his arms and shoot her once in the chest, the newspaper reported.
Jones’s girlfriend called 911 and reached the location where the gun was found.
Resendiz-Florez was identified as the assailant and taken into police custody and reportedly confessed to the shooting. She has been charged with murder, according to the Rolling Meadows Police Department.
A Resendiz-Florez attorney, Assistant Public Defender Courtney Smallwood, argued that her client was not living with the couple at the time, but with her family in Des Plaines, the Sun-Times reported.
Judge John F. Lyke Jr. ordered Resendiz-Flores’ detention without bond. She is expected to appear in court again on Tuesday.
