A Texas woman has been arrested and charged with murdering her boyfriend because he was being a “jerk.”

Laura Flores-Messick, 30, was taken into custody on Sunday after her boyfriend’s mother called the police. Reportedly, the mother of Chason Montez-Deoca, 40, was on the phone with him when she heard Flores-Messick yelling and making threats in the background. When authorities arrived, it was unfortunately too late.

When investigators asked Flores-Messick about the incident, she allegedly admitted to shooting and then cutting Montez-Deoca’s neck with a knife, saying that she was thinking about “what a jerk he is” at the time of the murder. She was reportedly upset that he had made her leave a bar and told investigators that she left the home unaware if the victim was still alive and did not call for medical help out of fear that she would be arrested.

Montez-Deoca was a U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq briefly before leaving the military in 2013. Flores-Messick is being held on a $75,000 bond.
