Claudia Resendiz-Florez Wiki – Claudia Resendiz-Florez Biography
Claudia Resendiz-Florez is an Illinois mother of three who shot a man dead after he — and his girlfriend — refused to kiss her, authorities said.
Resendiz-Florez 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.
She is 28 years old.
According to the release, police were called at 9:44 p.m. Thursday to report a shot fired at The Preserve at Woodfield apartment complex, 4700 Arbor Drive. Police found Jones with a gunshot wound to the chest.
Police did not clarify whether Jones lived in the apartment building or how the two knew each other if they did.
Resendiz-Florez then also asked Jones’ girlfriend for a kiss, which prosecutors said declined at a bond hearing on Saturday.
Resendiz-Flores demanded that he kiss her again, which he again refused, infuriating her, prosecutors said, according to the Sun-Times.
She then grabbed Jones’ gun, tucked beneath a couch cushion in the home, and pointed it at Jones. Prosecutors said that Jones tried to lower the weapon when he saw that she had pulled off the safety, but she could raise her arms and shoot him once in the chest, the paper reported.
Jones’ girlfriend called 911, who arrived on the scene where they found the handgun.Who is Claudia Resendiz-Florez? Wiki, Biography, Age, Shot A Man, Arrested
