Woman Shot Her Boyfriend in the Head Because She Thought He Was Having an Affair
A Sunrise woman is facing an attempted murder charge after police say she shot her boyfriend in the head because she thought he was having an affair.
Balvina Moscote, 68, was arrested Monday night after she shot the man during an argument at the home the couple has shared for the past three years, according to a Sunrise Police arrest affidavit.
The argument was over another woman the unidentified man is alleged to have a relationship with.
According to the affidavit, Moscote became enraged, loaded her .22 caliber handgun and confronted the victim, pointing the gun at him and demanding he tell the truth about the suspected relationship with the other woman.
Moscote shot the gun twice, grazing the top of the man's head and hitting him once in the left arm. The shot to the head caused significant injury.
The man was able to take the gun from Moscote and when he went to check on his injuries in the bathroom, Moscote fled the home on foot.
Moscote ran to a friend's house where police found her and took her into custody. While at the house, Moscote told her friends she "had ruined her life and that she had shot the victim two times,".
When officers questioned Moscote she admitted to shooting her boyfriend, saying she shot him because she was feeling so disrespected.
The man was taken to the intensive care unit at Broward General Medical Center for treatment for slight bleeding on the brain.
Moscote was being held without bond Wednesday and it was unknown whether she has an attorney.
