The woman who authorities say fatally shot a Rolling Meadows man last week after he refused her request for a kiss appeared in a Rolling Meadows courtroom Tuesday.

Claudia Resendiz-Flores appeared via Zoom from the Cook County jail for the brief hearing during which Cook County Judge Ellen Mandeltort set her next hearing for Nov. 5.


Resendiz-Flores, 28, is being held without bail.

According to authorities, Resendiz-Flores had recently moved from Des Plaines into the Rolling Meadows apartment occupied by James Jones, 29, and his current girlfriend.

Resendiz-Flores and Jones had a previous relationship, authorities said.

While the three were hanging out and drinking on Thursday, Resendiz-Flores reportedly asked Jones for a kiss. After he refused her and instead turned to his girlfriend for a kiss, Resendiz-Flores became jealous, authorities said. She demanded he kiss her and, when he refused again, she took his gun from between some couch cushions and shot him once in the chest, killing him, authorities said.
