An Illinois woman was arrested after prosecutors allege she shot and killed a man because he refused to kiss her.
Police arrested Claudia Resendiz-Flores on October 14 in Rolling Meadows, a suburb of Chicago, and charged her with first-degree murder, according to a release from the Rolling Meadows Police Department. Police found one victim, James P. Jones, who had been shot in the chest and was later pronounced dead, according to the statement.
Resendiz-Flores had been drinking with a couple who she had recently moved in with at their home on Saturday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Prosecutors said Resendiz-Flores took Jones' gun and pointed it at him after he declined her request for a kiss, asking his girlfriend for a peck instead, the newspaper reported.
Jones pushed the gun down, but Resendiz-Florez lifted her arm again and shot him once in the chest, prosecutors said. According to the Sun-Times, Jones' girlfriend then called 911 and police later found the gun in the couple's living room.
Resendiz-Florez is married, but is separated from her husband and is the sole provider for her three children, the Sun-Times reported. Assistant Public Defender Courtney Smallwood, who is representing Resendiz-Flores, disputed that her client was living with Jones and his girlfriend and said Resendiz-Flores was actually living at a family home in Des Plaines, Illinois, according to the Sun-Times.
A judge ordered Resindiz-Flores to be held without bail at a bond hearing on Saturday, The Daily Herald reported. She is next expected in court on Tuesday.
