Osceola County, FL (January 4, 2019) – Deputies are going to issue charges to a man who threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend and her entire family. The suspect was identified as Maximo Flores, who has a history of violence.
The victim spoke to deputies and told them that all of this stemmed from a fight about Flores and how she wanted him to remove his items from her home. The incident started on Brookstone Drive on Sunday when police were called out to her house.
The victim told deputies that Flores messaged her on Facebook and told her that he would kill her. He told her that he was going to kill himself but, if he didn’t, he would make sure that she was killed before he went to prison.
Records show that Flores has been arrested 16 times since 2014, with many of these charges stemming from battery, domestic violence, and more. He could be facing five years behind bars at this time.
