Laura Flores Messick, 30, of San Antonio, Texas, has been arrested after shooting her US Army Veteran boyfriend, Chason Montezdeoca, 40, all because he was ‘being a jerk’. She shot the man, and then, proving she must have some sort of sickness, went to his body and slit his throat to ‘make sure he was dead’.
Messick told police that she had shot him in the hallway of their home, all because he had made her angry because he forced her to leave a bar earlier than she wanted.
Police say Montezdeoca was shot several times in the chest, as well as in the hand. They found him with his throat cut as well.

A woman has been charged with murder after allegedly shooting her US Army veteran boyfriend when he was being ‘a jerk’ then slitting his throat to make sure he was dead.
Laura Flores Messick, 30, was arrested in San Antonio on Sunday night on suspicion of killing her boyfriend Chason Montezdeoca, 40, who served in Iraq, the day before.
Police say she opened fire on the man as he stood in the hallway of their shared home in San Antonio, Texas, on Saturday.
Messick told police she was angry he had made her leave a bar earlier and thought to herself ‘what an a**hole, what a jerk’ as she fired the gun, Fox San Antonio reports.
After shooting him several times in the chest and hand, she took a knife and cut his throat, they say.
On Saturday night, the man’s mother visited and found his corpse. Messick was arrested the following day.
Messick is being held on a $75,000 bond on suspicion of first degree murder.
