Puerto Rican woman kills man after Facebook fight
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Police in Puerto Rico say a 27-year-old woman is suspected of killing her boyfriend after he became upset about her activities on Facebook.
Lt. Candido Pagan says there were two children in the house when the killing occurred Saturday morning: a nearly 2-month-old girl and a 10-year-old boy. Pagan says both belonged to suspect Wilnilia Sanchez Falcon, but it’s unclear if they witnessed the killing in the central mountain town of Comerio.
Pagan says Sanchez is expected to be charged in the death of 25-year-old Jesus Rivera Algarin, who was stabbed in the torso. The lieutenant provided no information about what Sanchez may have posted on her Facebook account to upset Rivera.
He says Sanchez didn’t have a criminal history but Rivera was charged with domestic violence in 2010.
