87-Year-Old Man Shoots Girlfriend He Suspected of Cheating

Elderly Miami man charged with murder after suicide attempt failed

An 87-year-old Miami man who suspected his 84-year-old girlfriend of cheating on him has been charged with her murder.

Juan Adolfo Gonzalez stalked Celida Hernandez daily for months until he decided to take action Friday, according to police.

Gonzalez took a taxi to Hernandez's apartment on the 9400 block of W. Flagler Street and waited for a bus to drop her off from a senior's dining hall.

When Hernandez arrived, Gonzalez shot her twice, then turned the gun on himself.

Hernandez died from her injuries, but Gonzalez lived, and is now at Jackson Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said he admitted to the shooting.
