Woman killed boyfriend after he damaged her iPhone
She killed him – but she still loves him.
Hot tempered Jasmine Diaz told her Bronx Central Booking cellmate that she is still in love with Franklyn Hernandez, her 17-year old boyfriend who she’s accused of running down with an SUV after he accidentally damaged her iPhone.
“She says she loves him and she feels like s —t, ” the 21-year-old cellmate, Michelle Rodriguez, said after being released on a shoplifting charge.
Diaz, 25, was held without bail after her arraignment on manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident for allegedly mowing down Hernandez early Wednesday morning a block away from his home on Morris Ave and E. 165th St.
“Franklyn jumped in front of the vehicle and I just kept going,” she told investigators, a prosecutor said in court.
Wearing a matching blue jean jacket and pants, Rodriguez said Diaz was pensive while awaiting her turn to see the judge.
“She was soft spoken,” the cellmate said. “She said she didn’t intentionally hit him.”
After leaving the courtroom, Diaz flew into another rage, screaming the F-word several times. A half dozen of her family members and her lawyer William Schwarz refused to comment.
Diaz, who faces a maximum of 25 years if convicted, returns to court June 12. – New York Post
