“Since she doesn’t understand the nature of my job, I flew into a rage,” the suspect was quoted by police in admitting to the allegations.

The suspect and the victim live together. Prior to the incident, she arrived at the club to meet him after work. The pair then got into the argument after the suspect took a call from another woman.
