Claudia Resendiz-Florez: Woman kills man after he and girlfriend refuse to kiss her
Claudia Resendiz-Florez, 28, became furious when both the man and his girlfriend refused to kiss her
ROLLING MEADOWS, ILLINOIS: A mother-of-three from Ilinois fatally shot a man after he and his girlfriend refused to kiss her. Claudia Resendiz-Florez, 28, had moved in with James P Jones, 29, and his girlfriend at the Preserve Woodfield apartment complex in Rolling Meadows. While the three were drinking together last week, Resendiz-Florez asked Jones to kiss her. Jones refused and instead kissed his girlfriend.
Resendiz-Florez then asked Jones' girlfriend to kiss her, which she refused to do, prosecutors said at a bond hearing. The woman then demanded again that Jones kiss her, and when he declined, Resendiz-Florez became furious. She took Jones' gun, which was tucked beneath a couch cushion, and pointed it at Jones. Before he could stop her, she had pulled off the safety. She then shot Jones in the chest, killing him.
Jones' girlfriend dialled 911 and they arrived on the scene and found the gun. Resendiz-Florez, who was identified as the shooter, was then taken into police custody. She confessed to the shooting and has been charged with murder. Assistant Public Defender Courtney Smallwood, who is an attorney for Resendiz-Florez, said that her client was apparently not living with the couple at that time. She claimed that Resendiz-Florez was living with her family in Des Plaines when the attack took place.
Judge John F Lyke Jr ordered that Resendiz-Flores must be held without bail, and she is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, October 19, again.
In another shooting incident this month, Off-duty New York City Police Department cop Yvonne Wu allegedly shot her ex-girlfriend at a Brooklyn home on October 13. She then turned the gun to her former lover's new romantic interest after catching the two together at the residence, according to police and sources with knowledge of the case. Wu, 31, is a five-year veteran of the force who shot her ex, Jenny Li, 23, after she arrived at the house, planning to spend time with her despite their recent split. Police sources said on October 14 that Wu might have lost her cool after seeing Li with another woman.
Investigating authorities said Wu was already at Li's house before her ex arrived with her new lover. It wasn't determined as to how Wu might have entered the house and detectives are trying to figure out if she had trespassed onto the property. Police arrived at the scene following a 911 call that was made from the house. A source said, a woman had made the call and she was heard saying, "No please! No please! after which four "bangs" could be heard on the audio. Kemper didn't confirm if Wu made use of her service weapon but they recovered a firearm from the crime scene.
