The wife of a man who shot and killed a Burger King employee during a dispute over a food order has been arrested.
Police in Orange County, Florida arrested Ashley Mason, 31, on charges of principal to first-degree murder and aggravated assault.
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.
