Brooklyn man killed girlfriend

A Brooklyn man killed his girlfriend because he feared his wife would come home and catch them together.

Daniel Romain, 33, fought violently with his girlfriend Tisa Kelly, 46, whom he had asked to leave his East 95th Street apartment before his wife got home.

During the violent struggle, Romain stabbed his girlfriend multiple times then hid her body in the shower.

An upstairs neighbor told the NY Post she heard sounds of a brawl and “loud banging” as if someone was being “thrown against walls.”

The neighbor, Quinetta Wooten, 29. said there was a brief moment of silence before someone turned a radio volume way up high. "The radio came playing real loud like to cover it up,” she said.

Police arrived an hour later and found Kelly hog tied and face down in the shower. She suffered stab wounds to her neck, back and upper torso.

Romain's hands were covered in blood, and police spotted two knives and a pair of scissors soaking in the sink. There was an odor of bleach in the bathroom, police sources said.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Why would your dumb azz cheat in the house you share with your wife if you were so worried about her catching you?! Stupid!

  • Angela

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Let's talk about how good God is. Jimmy Carter reports that he is cancer free. #WontHeDoIt

  • Angela

    I betcha the deceased was thinking, "He loves me so much he bangin me down in his wife's bed. He don't love her". Now he killed her dead.

  • SoChlo

    I think a dead body would be a lot harder to explain to his wife.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    How in the hell he thought he would get away with that shyt ... stabbed and hog tied .... chile

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    smh ...... just awful

  • Auditor

    Thought he been gone...

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Yes!!!! Me and my mama were talking about that last night. I love Jimmy & Rosalynn!

  • jussaying

    The irony here is he did all that to hide his girlfriend from the wife. But now the whole world including his wife knows his arse was cheating and he'll be sitting in a jail cell. Did not think this plan through.

  • Angela

    ??

  • LipstickANDlace

    Ladies stop with this foolishness it's plenty of men out here. Messing with a no good cheap azz married man got her killed

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    He ain't finished with Ole Jimmy ...... there is still work for Jimmy ... Love that guy .... smh they dogged the hell out that man during his presidency too .....

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Speaking of dating (lol), some random channel that I never heard of is going to have a new reality/dating show for black women. Basically, the show follows 5/6 black women in NY as they date. On the radio, they made it seem like it would be less reality show-ish and more self help-ish. I am going to check it out. I think it airs tonight.

  • jussaying

    Don't they always dog the good ones.smh

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    **In my preacher's voice** The devil though he had meee, but, Goooodddd!!!!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I was getting ready to type this!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I mean messing with a married man is obviously wrong. But clearly the issue is not so much that he was married as the fact that he is a crazy retard. I mean there are crazy retarded single men that will kill you. Women should choose wisely period. Learn to recognize the crazy in their EYES!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile ..... me and my friend had this discussion this morning ...... folks always use and dog good people period across the board ..... but Lord ..... my good people ..... keep being faithful ..... try not to let these demonic folks sway ya .... chile ...... cause it's going to get even harder in these days .... folks are full of evil now smh

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Well yeah he crazy ... but if this broad ... would have stayed her trifling azz away from this fool off top .... she would be alive .... but aye all that is obviously blood under the bridge nah smh ... sad

  • kgirl33

    I wish you knew the channel.

  • SandrasNewFave

    Narcissistic. Got a wife & girlfriend. Coming & going. Don't even have to leave the house (for work or) to cheat. If she don't leave when I say, I'm mad enough to kill her. I'm running ERRTHANG! ?

  • Divame

    She should've left, lol

  • kgirl33

    I just assumed that she popped up. The article said he kept asking her to leave.

  • SameoleJ

    Right?!

  • SummerBaby

    Folks are crazy as hell. His wife better not stick by his side either.

  • SameoleJ

    So to hide infidelity, you commit a murder. She must have been tired of only "visiting" the home and decided this was the day to lay claim. Anybody who would cheat at home is A. Cheap, B. Crazy and C. Has no respect for anybody (as if the cheating wasn't already a clear indication).

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Blood under the bridge? lol ma'am...

    But I agree. Stay away from married men.

  • SameoleJ

    But how did she know where he lived and how did she get in the house in the first place? SMH, we will only know his story, unless she told her bestie every detail.

  • tintin

    STOP CHEATING, this is what happens.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I was just about to write that! Maybe she did pop up this time, but he brought her there before. Believe that!

  • SameoleJ

    And he let her in. If she popped up, he should have left her outside and played dumb.......Harpo, Who this lady is??

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Don't be surprised if she does!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Found it. FYI channel, show is called #BlackLove.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She probably will. He will mind fck her into thinking he loves her so much, he killed for her.

  • Dee

    Now he caught a case and going to jail, hopefully for life.

  • Mela Reign

    So let me get this right the girlfriend was at the home that Psycho dad and his wife lived. Why was the girlfriend in this lady house anyways? I'm sorry she was murdered but nothing good can come from things like that.

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Gm Blaque.....if you spite some GOLDIE pimp shyt again.imma give you a tilted brim,coat over your shoulders,put a pimp cup in your right hand,put a tooth pick in yer mouth and pose you in that GANGSTA LEAN????

  • AnonymousRose

    I don't believe this chyt, no human is this dam stupid :coffee:

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    There's a video reenactment online that says she wanted to leave but he wanted her to stay. His stepfather, who was home at the time, called the police. (daily motion dot com Brooklyn man beats and fatally stabs girlfriend before his wife comes home)

  • Renee26

    So what's the wife to think when she sees the crime scene? Dummy...what happened to getting a room

  • Sexy CJ

  • Miss

    As crazy as they come...

  • the guest

    Am I too judgmental? I had a friend who started an affair with a married man while she was pregnant with her boyfriend's baby. Then after the baby was born would bring the baby to the married man's home he shared with his wife to continue the affair. I wish she didn't tell me about it. I felt bad for telling her she was wrong and for not speaking to her for a long time. She said I was too judgmental. This SR post reminds me I was not too judgmental. Its just wrong to go into someone's home and sleep with their spouse. Wrong!

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    Oh you wanna have your cake & eat it too ?? Nah.

  • the guest

    AMEN.

  • stav

    Man is progressing from bad to worse.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    LOL! Good morning.

  • Saphistication

    What a creep.. Instead of his cheap cheating butt invest in a hotel room, he'd rather smash in his house and then kill the chick? I'm not saying it's good that she's dead, but Karma is real and both have experienced that; lock him up and throw away the key.

  • Danger

    Your meme's give me life lol

  • 100milesperhour

    And not even at the hands of the wife! Adultery gets you no where.

  • 100milesperhour

    Yeah but if the man isn't already taken, there's no way for the mistress to feel better than you. That competition w/the wife gives these sad harlots the esteem & motivation they need to keep going.

  • shaybytheway

    Didn't think that through did ya buddy?

  • Renee Bee

    Then he tried to cover it up with BLEACH! Ya big dummy. Does this clown not watch tv? CSI Miami, ID Channel, Dateline even good old Matlock? Smh.

  • violet_skyz

    Not her fault dude is a psycho. His reasoning and logic is out the door. He was wrong for cheating but her dying like that in his hands is wrong weather she cheated with a married man or not. A sin is a sin period. Not one weighs more than the other. So all u bitter ladies whose husbands must cheat on yall on a regular are saying that's what she gets, u all are evil as the guy who did the killing.......I just think it's fascinating when people solely blame the woman when a married man cheats.

  • Arii

    I think it would have been better if the wife had just caught him...

  • Liljwells

    Note to self...

  • MzFutureLCSW

    What an idiot.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    He already has been arrested in the past for attempted murder:

    A man facing charges of attempted murder was arrested again after he
    allegedly stabbed a woman to death in the bathtub of his Brooklyn home
    this weekend.

    Police say that Florida resident Tisha Denise Kelly, 46, was found
    unconscious and unresponsive with slash wounds to her neck, back and
    torso inside 649 East 95th Street in East Flatbush around 4:30 p.m.
    Saturday. She was inside a bathtub with her ankles and wrists tied with
    bedsheets, but still breathing when cops entered the residence. The
    victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

    The Times describes
    the scene when cops arrived: "[Cops] found the man, Daniel Romain, 33,
    inside the apartment with plastic bags on his hands and his clothes
    covered in blood, the police said. He fled out the back door of the
    apartment but was arrested by the officers after a brief foot chase."
    They add that in the apartment, "the smell of bleach pervaded, an
    apparent sign of a hasty attempt to clean up traces of the grisly
    crime."

    Romain has been charged with murder and criminal possession of a
    weapon. Romain is facing unrelated charges of attempted murder and
    weapons possession stemming from a shooting outside an East New York
    house party on April 25th. He was arrested before that for drug sales
    and attempted robbery.

    The Times also reports that yesterday's stabbing "began as an
    argument between Mr. Romain and Ms. Kelly, who, the police said, had
    been attempting to leave the apartment before his wife returned home
    from work."

  • Xsjado

    Wow

  • SameoleJ

    Seriously.......did he think the bleach smell would delete the actual body?

  • Yes, I’m That Leah

    If you want to play, stay single.

  • SameoleJ

    I agree.........Although I don't agree that she should have been at his house (or even sleeping with him), I wouldn't say her death is what she deserves.

  • SameoleJ

    So she was an invited guest. This is truly sad.

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    Truth and try to justify it by saying they deserve it because they're a bad person. See it everyday in today's society

  • LibraGirlonly

    Stay out of people houses. My friend said his girlfriend who is already married asked him to come over and get in the Jacuuzzi while her husband was gone. I told him don't take your A to that mans house. I don't understand why she would be willing to go to another women's house but she didn't deserve to be killed.

  • Sexy CJ

    Lol................

  • Sexy CJ

    ***********

  • WhooCares

    Wow, sounds like someone I know of smh and no you were definitely not being judgmental

  • LibraGirlonly

    People don't understand that. I know someone who killed a man because he caught him sleeping with his wife. The man lost his life and the guy is serving prison time and the woman has moved on with her life. One day she will have to tell her daughter why her father is in prison. So sad

  • imright

    close ur legs 2 married men!!!

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Did the neighbor call the police? I'm glad this clown was arrested what did he think would happen? This ain't the movies

  • YES I SAID IT…

    My thing is U had enough balls to have your girlfriend at the house so why u ain't man enough to tell your wife about your girlfriend if she so happens to catch her in y'all house! I swear some people are so dumb, like where was u going to hide the body???

  • O.B. DaLava

    Someone doesnt watch "How to get away with murder"

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    They are using the term girlfriend very loosely. Judging by the way he treated her for jeopardizing his marriage, she was a run of the mill side piece.

  • Shantonda

    what's even more stupid is how he thought killing her was gonna keep his wife from finding her there... but he put her in the shower... or does his wife never go in the bathroom......

  • E Love

    ...more than I can say.

  • Sleepy One

    That is so disrespectful

  • 1/8

    Like my granny used to say, " If you'll lie, you'll steal, and if you'll steal, you'll kill... dishonesty is a slippery slope."

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    What @mzfuturelcsw posted stated she was trying to leave. I wonder if she knew he was married, and what were they arguing about. The only version between the two is his version. She can't verbally tell hers.

  • E Love

    Won't He will!

  • E Love

    Not only is it known that he was cheating, but the entire world now knows how STUPID he is.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    There is a reason for it. I don't know if he knew what it was, but I will not post that. Folks can do their own research on that.

  • https://instagram.com/calirose2501/ calirose2501

    Its called honoring your vows. Not everyone is tick for tat. Obviously the romantic relationship is over.If my husband was going to jail for something he did, i would stay by them in trial. Its our job to lift each other to Christ, and pray for them. Do not bash this woman if she stands by her husband to be supportive

  • JJ

    You will stand by the side of your adulterous murderer husband who took a woman's life just because he feared getting caught? Now a woman is dead because he was a coward who couldnt just ask for forgiveness. God gave me sense enough to take a step back and not support him at all. The best I can do is wish him a life of not getting raped everyday in prison until God calls him home. As far as supporting him, absolutely not! I'd support the prosecution before I would ever support him.

  • Reddy

    But he murdered his side chick that he was screwing in his wife's house and in her bed. When do you say I cant support this BS? Was he being supportive of their relationship when he was having an affair. I'm all for supporting my husband...love Mr. Redd's whole being but let him pull this nonsense! He would be glad the police got to him first...

  • Go Head With That

    Probably because he was "done" and the dopamine faded for that day

  • kgirl33

    FYI? Hopefully I have that channel. Thanks?

  • kgirl33

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

  • Go Head With That

    Exactly. He killed the one person that was just as trick azz as him. The dummy that delivered hot pockets to another woman's home. No hotel huh?

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Well damn(Gucci mane voice).

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Exactly

  • kgirl33

    I figured she popped up, he let her in (to keep from making a scene at the door) told her not to do that ish anymore because that's drawlin and that his wife was on the way. She got mad, he kept telling her to leave, she refused, he said bish if you don't leave ima knock you upside your head. She hit him he hit her, they got fighting and she ended up dead. Just my theory....

  • kgirl33

    Absolutely!

  • https://instagram.com/calirose2501/ calirose2501

    If she wants to talk to him until he goes to jail permanently until he gets sentenced..thats her business. If she wants to support him regardless then thats her

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Well i don't feel sorry for her ass, there's plenty of available men out here choose one. She was trying to stay & wait to cause trouble with that man wife when she got home. It could have ended with the innocent wife going to jail or hurt.

  • https://instagram.com/calirose2501/ calirose2501

    Yes i would be upset but if she has accepted it and wants to support him when he is on trial..let her do so without basing her

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    @Letyoursoul. Or she could have followed him home one day. You know men are dumb.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lord......

  • SummerBaby

    I don't have a problem with a person holding another down, however this man killed a woman he was dating for his own selfish reasons. I don't agree nor would I be there for him. His mama & them can joce him, but it wouldn't be me. Now if the circumstances were difference perhaps.

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    @Blaque. I don't he was crazy, i think his ass just got scared & panic about his wife finding out.

  • SameoleJ

    Update down thread: She was invited by him to the house. And when she wanted to leave, the altercation took place and led to her death.

  • Shantonda

    unless his wife never goes in the bathroom, that made no sense AT ALL smh

  • kgirl33

    Ohhhhhh. Crazy smh

  • http://batman-news.com Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I don't understand his logic...you kill your girlfriend because you don't want your wife finding out you're cheating when she comes home?

  • DopeRhymesYo

    Wayment. ... she wouldn't leave..... so he just stabbed?? her up ?..... when being a side piece goes terribly wrong ? ya'll homewreckin whores gon learn ?

  • Sincerity7

    So that totally solved the problem buddy! No way your wife will find out about that dead chick in the bath tub. I think a divorce is certain now that you'll be in prison for the rest of your life, but there would have been a chance you could have kissed your wife's azz and stayed married if you would have went ahead and got caught cheating.

  • Nonya Bizness

    The lady/main character on there named Monet was on season 1 of Married at First Sight, on the same channel.

  • Mela Reign

    Omg, that's awful. I think some don't take in account how their bad decisions will not only affect them but their love ones. I also think it's more to this story.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    I was thinking maybe she popped up at the house and refused to leave

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yeah, sje said that during the radio interview. Definitely made me questions her...

  • TANYA INGRAM

    Jesus is arriving sooner than we think so be ready

  • Bubbles

    Wrong is wrong.
    Shouldn't have been cheating in the first place. FIN

  • just saying

    I agree

  • Her_withtheglasses

    Exactly!!

  • the guest

    Thank you. I felt if a friend can act that way they can do the same to you. No sense of boundaries like the woman in the article. They don't think they are wrong.

  • WhooCares

    Tell it!! I stay far away from females I know that are effin people's man or husband cause they surely will do it to u. No morals smh

  • Renee Bee

    He did not think this through at all. Plus they have that forensic black UV light that shows the presence of blood or other bodily fluids. Ugh!

  • SameoleJ

    I am still confused at to why you are cleaning with an entire body in the bathtub and she was still alive!! Like dude.........really!!

  • the guest

    I'm sorry this woman is dead because of HER OWN selfishness and stupidity. That's a special kind of audacity to go into a wife's home and sleep with her husband. And then refuse to leave the wife's home. That might get a woman killed if not by the husband in fear of getting caught but by the wife who catches them. Not everyone is rational. No one deserves to be killed but that woman was an idiot.

    Like that other story a few weeks back. No one deserves to be shot but an 18 year old man sneaking out the window of a 14 year minor girl's bedroom at night runs the risk of a father who does not play.

  • the guest

    He put his wife in a devastating position. But no one should bash her. She's got a long road ahead healing from this.

  • the guest

    The husband and the side chick were both crazy. She's going to fight a man in the house he shares with his wife because she don't want to leave and wants the wife to find her there. Only a crazy person would do that and only a crazier person would kill her. Both nuts.

  • the guest

    I don't think he expected the police to be called. Had the neighbor not called the police he would have disposed of the body and cleaned up. But he still would've been caught. Because you know his audacious side piece told everyone and their mama about him and his married house. These two nutjobs had no chill whatsoever.

  • the guest

    Research on why he didn't think it through or consider black UV lights? or Research why he was cleaning with an entire body in the bathtub and she was still alive?

  • the guest

    LOL.

  • the guest

    No, SHE refused to leave and that lead to the altercation.

  • the guest

    This is how I see it too with the exception of I saw this as their regular meet up after the wife left for work and when the party was over she refused to leave. He was trifling and was having parties in his marriage home on a regular basis. Evil!

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    No

  • SehkmetGoddess

    It doesnt matter, but they were black. At least the murder victim was. Very pretty lady. A doctor. I had to know if we were this kind of crazy, so I Facebook searched. I have a photo, but it won't allow me to upload it. Doesn't seem like her family knew and she has a hyphenated last name, she may have been married too.

  • SameoleJ

    You may want to let the Times know this then: The deadly stabbing on Saturday began as an argument between Mr. Romain and Ms. Kelly, who, the police said, had been trying to leave the apartment before Mr. Romain’s wife returned home from work. It was not clear why he wanted Ms. Kelly to stay, the police said, but at some point he began punching her.

  • Desiree

    So he killed her because he didn't want his wife to catch her there but yet, he kills her in the very house he wanted her to leave. Uhhh okay....

  • the guest

    She was insane to be in the wife's home and the husband is an insane lowlife pos for having her in his wife's home. Whether he refused to let her leave or she refused to go they should've been playing that dangerous game to begin with.

  • the guest

    A DOCTOR! Really?

  • SameoleJ

    I agree!!

  • SehkmetGoddess

    Dr. Tisa Denise Kelly

    Also a teacher at Lake Alfred Addair Middle School. A REALLY pretty lady.

    I didn't know people were still side chicks at 46... #noshade but..
