Mason's husband, Kelvis Rodriguez-Tormes, 37, (left) was arrested Sunday and charged in the murder of Burger King employee Desmond Joshua Jr., 22.

Sunday was Joshua's second day on the job, according to a police affidavit obtained by PEOPLE.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said a woman upset that her order was taking too long got out of her car yelling she was going to call "her man" to come back to the restaurant and handle the situation.

The woman, later identified as Mason, left in a black sedan and returned accompanied by Rodriguez-Tormes driving a white truck. Rodriguez-Tormes targeted Joshua and called him outside to fight, according to the affidavit. He put Joshua in a headlock and began choking him in the parking lot.

The affidavit said a witness separated the two men, and Rodriguez-Tormes went to his truck to retrieve his firearm.

According to the affidavit, Mason said she took the gun out of the truck and put it in her car, but her husband demanded the weapon. She said Joshua jumped over the hood of her car and approached Rodriguez-Tormes.

According to a witness, Rodriguez-Tormes told Joshua, "You got two seconds before I shoot you," and then shot him. Joshua was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Mason and Rodriguez-Tormes are being held without bond.

A Florida man is charged with killing a Burger King employee after the man's girlfriend complained that her fast food order was taking too long.

Kelvis Rodriguez-Tormes, 37, (left) was arrested for the murder of Desmond Joshua, 22, in the parking lot of a Burger King restaurant on east Colonial Drive in Orlando at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Workers say the restaurant was very busy on Saturday, and there were long lines inside the restaurant and in the drive thru.

The Orange County Sheriff's Officer said a woman upset that her order was taking too long got out of her car yelling she was going to call "her man" to come back to the restaurant and handle the situation.

After the woman caused a scene, an employee refunded her $40 and asked her to leave, according to the affidavit.

The woman left in a black sedan and returned in a white truck driven by Rodriguez-Tormes, who confronted Joshua and demanded he fight him in the restaurant parking lot.

Rodriguez-Tormes put Joshua in a headlock and began choking him. The affidavit said a witness separated the two men, and Rodriguez-Tormes went to his truck to retrieve his firearm.

According to a witness, Rodriguez-Tormes told Joshua, "You got two seconds before I shoot you," and then shot him.

Rodriguez-Tormes got back in his truck and fled the scene. He later told police he dismantled the gun and discarded the pieces in a place "which cannot be located."

Joshua was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, CLickOrlando.com reports.

Rodriguez-Tormes is charged with murder, destruction of evidence and weapons possession.

Remember the story about the guy who buried a Big Mac for one year, then dug it up and ate it on his 40th birthday?

He wanted to prove fast food is so loaded with artificial preservatives that it never spoils - even after a year underground.

On Wednesday, Burger King announced a new campaign that includes a moldy Whopper to prove their food does not contain artificial preservatives.

According to a press release, Burger King food also doesn't contain flavors from artificial sources. More than 90 percent of ingredients used in Burger King restaurants are free of preservatives.

"The Burger King brand is currently rolling out the Whopper sandwich with no preservatives, colors, or flavors from artificial sources in the U.S.," said Christopher Finazzo, President of BK's North America.

The new Whoppers are available in 400 markets in Europe and select markets in the United States. The sandwiches will reach all markets by the end of the year.

Fast food giant Burger King is showing its support for Gay Pride by repackaging its signature Whopper sandwich in rainbow colored wrappers that reads "We are all the same inside."

The $4.29 gay-friendly 'Proud Whopper' sandwich is being offered at one San Francisco area Burger King franchise on Market Street through Thursday.

Offensive receipt

A low wage Burger King employee is out of a job after apparently giving a grandmother and her daughter-in-law a receipt with the words "B*tch a*s h*es" on it.

The receipt was given to the two women at the drive-thru of a Richmond, Va., Burger King on Saturday, wtvr.com reports.

Miss Lorel, who did not want her last name published, told the station she read the receipt and immediately returned to the Burger King to speak with the manager.

“He did apologize. He also called the young lady over and asked her, ‘did you see this?’ She just shook her head. He said it had never happened before,” said Miss Lorel.

“This is more than an insult. I mean calling you names on a piece of a paper, that will hurt somebody,” said a tearful Miss Lorel. “I liked going there. But after this they won’t get my business anymore.”

“We are obviously upset by the harm this has caused one of our customers,” franchise owner John Naparlo said.

Naparlo said surveillance video would help determine which cashier was responsible for the receipt.

A Burger King spokesman later told the Huffington Post that the employee had been terminated.

But wtvr.com readers believe the grandmother and the employee may have been in cahoots.
