Woman Accused of Murdering Her Boyfriend in Delaware County
A Northeast Iowa woman is being charged with first-degree murder, in the shooting death of her boyfriend.
The incident happened shortly after 1 am Monday (Feb. 8), in the Delaware County town of Ryan.
Officers with the Delaware County Sheriff's Office responded to the report at Shady Acres Apartments, that an argument was heard, followed by a shot. Arriving officers discovered the body of 27-year-old Devon Hierrezuelo of Oak Lawn, Illinois.
33-year-old Danielle Weiner claimed that another man had entered the apartment and started arguing with Hierrezuelo in the living room and kitchen. Weiner said the shooting happened in the kitchen.

Weiner had also called the sheriff and stated that her boyfriend had been shot.
Weiner is now being held in the Delaware County Jail on a charge of First Degree Murder.
