A woman allegedly shot her common-law husband in the groin, killing him, after finding him cheating.

Debra Davis, 58, has been charged with the murder of 49-year-old Rodney Johnson. Police said she has already admitted to killing him, according to KHOU. Johnson was shot in his family’s Houston, Texas driveway on Tuesday while meeting up with his girlfriend. Then, Davis showed up with a gun, shooting Johnson in the “lower abdomen” region.  The other woman was present at the shooting, but she was not hurt.

“His girlfriend came and she shot him because he’s messing around with women,” Johnson’s cousin Robert Johnson said. “You know these things are love things.”

He said, while Johnson lived with Davis, he would often date other women.

"I'll put it like this: [He] loved a lot of women," Ralph Duncan, an ex-housemate of the slain man told KTRK. "That was the problem."

Johnson and Davis met through their children, who are married to each other. 

Davis turned herself in to police on Wednesday.
