Amanda Kates was in a triangle. She was living with Brandon S. Dennison, 20. Yet reportedly when her ex-boyfriend and father of her two children Enrique Santana was released from jail, she apparently began seeing him also.

Santana had served a 6 months jail term and was just released on Wed. He had been incarcerated on charges of terroristic threats and assault. Within the last 15 months, Ms. Kates had filed for two protection from abuse orders against him according to court records.

Early on Thurs. Kates and Santana were leaving a party together. According to witnesses, Dennison shot Santana in the leg. Santana ran to Kate's car and they started to drive away. Dennison then fired about 6 shots at the vehicle. Kates was driving.

Kates was shot in the head, and subsequently crashed the vehicle into some shubbery and another car. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Dennison fled after the shooting, but was later apprehended. He is currently hospitalized. Police have declined to comment on how he recieved his injury and have decliined to comment on whether Santana had a weapon and shot also.

Prior to the shooting, Dennison's criminal record consisted of a drug related crime in 2005 and trying to pass a counterfeit $50 bill in 2004. He is now charged with criminal homicide, attempted homicide and aggravated assault.

Guess he showed her didn't he? She will never go out with anyone else again. Of course she will never go out wtih him either, she will never smile at him again. And he may never have another "date" outside of prison.

Not to mention there are two kids without a mother. She won't be there to dry their tears or smile at them either.

Murder doesn't cure the jealousy problem. It just creates more problems!

    You can not possibly be serious. I hope in the year plus since you made this comment you’ve grown up and realized just how wrong you are.
    Wrong place at the wrong time??? You’re delusional.
