Ashley Mason, 31, was charged on Wednesday for her involvement in the death of Desmond Joshua, who had recently started working at a Burger King in Orlando.
The Aug. 1 shooting followed an argument involving the Burger Kings manager, Joshua and a woman, whom police officials later identified as Mason. Police said Mason had allegedly grown irate over the long wait time at the fast-food restaurants drive-thru, where she ordered $33.11 worth of food.
She was refunded her money and was ordered to leave, but not before she "threatened to bring her 'man' to the restaurant," the affidavit states.
According to the police document, subsequent video footage showed that Mason left the Burger King parking lot and returned shortly thereafter with her husband, Kelvis Rodríguez Tormes.
Rodríguez Tormes allegedly "demanded to fight" with Joshua and the pair moved to the parking lot, where he "placed [Joshua] into a headlock and began to choke him," the affidavit states.
As the men were fighting, Rodríguez Tormes allegedly said: Bust him if he touches me, according to a description of cellphone footage from the document. Witnesses broke up the fight.
Rodríguez Tormes then climbed into his truck, (snip)
He opened his window and stated: You got two seconds before I shoot you," the affidavit states.
Moments later, he shot Joshua a single time in the chest and drove away. The 22-year-old was rushed to a local hospital, but could not be saved.
According to the affidavit, witnesses told investigators they also watched Mason take her husbands gun and point it at restaurant employees before handing it off to Rodríguez Tormes.
When she got into her car, she allegedly had attempted to hit Joshua.

Any violent deaths are tragic, however, it really gets me to hear of disputes over fast food turning deadly. What’s with people; why do some people have such short fuses, such poor impulse control, especially over something as inconsequential as a hamburger or chicken Mc Nuggets??????
So she went to “get her man”. It’s quite possible they never see each other again, as they get sent to separate prisons to ponder their poor choices in life.
Why is this about the white girl the accomplice and not the colored guy, the perp?
They’re both murderers, but she instigated the whole thing.
Hes already in custody, I suppose. This happened a few days ago; probably took some time to nail down the skanks exact role in this.

- As a cop I see this often with these people. There a lot of things, Brain development, Behavioral Brakes, medication as a kid, hard drugs et al.
So she didn’t have time to wait in line, but she did have time to drive back home to get “her man” and then drive back to the restaurant?
I notice Florida woman has been giving Florida man a run for his money lately.
One look in her dead eyes and you see no love. She does not love “her man” and will not miss him.
Gets to me that do many have such long fuses and so much impulse control over things as consequential as a coup, insurrection and an engineered disease.
“It seems he killed her daddy once for spitting on the road
And you only had to kill her daddy once to get her real PO’d”
Because her being charged as an accessory with principal of first-degree murder is today's update.
He was charged for murder several days ago, as was reported in multiple media outlets at the time.
She was just arrested. Kelvis Rodriguez Tormes was
arrested shortly after the shooting a week ago.
She has that crazed public school teacher look...
This is news because the original story, which came out several days ago, had her not being charged at all.
On several other boards, there was some outrage that she, a woman, gets off Scot free after she is the one who instigated the aggression which led to the shooting.
Justice would be both of these scumbags put in jail (or sent to the chair) for murdering an innocent man.
She doesn’t get to walk away from this.
Drug use is often implicated in such cases.
“...Whats with people...”
Whatever it is it’s the same thing that makes people vote democrat.
