A 28-year-old woman in Illinois has shot and killed a man in a bizarre love triangle dispute, according to authorities.
Claudia Resendiz-Florez was staying with two friends—James Jones and his girlfriend—at their home in the city of Rolling Meadows when the incident unfolded on Thursday night, October 14, The Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Prosecutors in Cook County said that the trio were having a drink together when Resendiz-Florez allegedly asked Jones for a kiss.
Jones declined because he had a girlfriend who was sitting right next to him.
He then kissed his girlfriend in front of Resendiz-Florez, prompting an envious Resendiz-Florez to ask the girlfriend for a kiss, prosecutors said during a bond hearing.
She declined too.
When Jones once again refused to kiss her, an enraged Resendiz-Florez grabbed his gun that he had tucked between two couch cushions and aimed it at him, prosecutors said.
