Miami, FL (July 2, 2019) – 31-year-old Lissandra Acuna was arrested on attempted murder charges after she caught her estranged husband in bed with another woman and pulled a gun on them. She then threatened to kill them.
Acuna had allegedly been married to the man for approximately six years and is the mother of his children. However, the two split up in May. Acuna showed up at their apartment on Sunday, where she called a locksmith when she saw that the locks had been changed.
When Acuna got inside the home, she found her husband and another woman lying inside the bedroom. The husband and Acuna got into an argument, where she then pulled a handgun out of her purse and told them that she was going to kill them.
Acuna fired off shots and her husband was able to wrestle the gun away from her. Acuna also struggled with the woman in the bathroom while she was calling the police.
Acuna then grabbed the woman’s belongings and threw them over the balcony onto the roadway.
At this time, Acuna is being held on charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault.
