Mother of 3 Charged with Murder After Allegedly Shooting Man for Refusing to Kiss Her


An Illinois woman with three children was charged with first-degree murder after shooting a man who refused to kiss her, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Claudia Resendiz-Flores recently moved in with James Jones and his girlfriend when Resendiz-Flores allegedly asked Jones for a kiss while drinking together Thursday night, Cook County prosecutors said at her bond hearing on Saturday, the Sun-Times reported.

After Jones declined to kiss Resendiz-Flores, she subsequently asked Jones’ girlfriend for a kiss, which she refused.

After requesting that Jones kiss her a second time, Resendiz-Flores grabbed Jones’ gun from under a couch cushion in the apartment and aimed it at him, prosecutors said.

Jones tried to lower the gun when he saw Resendiz-Flores take the safety off and put her finger on the trigger, but she allegedly lifted her arms, shooting him fatally in the chest.

Jones’ girlfriend called 911, the Sun-Times reported.

Resendiz-Flores reportedly admitted to shooting Jones and has been charged with first-degree murder.

She is separated from her husband and is the sole caretaker of her three children.

Resendiz-Flores’ attorney, a public defender, said her client currently resides in Iowa.

A judge ordered Resendiz-Flores to be held without bail, and she is expected to be back in court on Tuesday.
