The husband of Iris Rodriguez lies over her body after allegedly stabbing her inside a Queens nail salon on Aug. 7, 2019, according to police and witnesses.

A jealous husband brutally stabbed his wife to death inside the Queens salon where she worked, then lay on top of her lifeless body, weeping, as police dragged him away, cops and witnesses said Wednesday.

The 35-year-old woman, identified by friends and police sources as Iris Rodriguez, was working inside the Tu S’tilo Salon and Spa on 37th Ave. by 93rd St. in Jackson Heights at about 7 p.m. when her husband attacked her, cops said.



Iris Rodriguez was working inside the Tu S'tilo Salon and Spa in Jackson Heights when she was allegedly stabbed to death by her husband, police and witnesses said.

He stabbed her several times in the chest as her horrified co-workers watched, police said. Video obtained by the Daily News shows her attacker, dressed in a torn green shirt, laying on top of her and embracing her, a pool of blood congealing underneath them as he speaks softly to her.

“Everyone can see!” a woman yells off-screen, right before police enter the salon.

“Move out of the way, move out of the way,” one officer says. “Anyone who saw anything, stay here.”

“Dios mio!” a woman yells, just as the officers drag him off of her by his shirt.

Video shows moments when man lays on body of wife after allegedly killing her.
Medics rushed her to Elmhurst General Hospital, but she couldn't be saved.

Rodriguez and her husband split after about four years of marriage in January, but he became jealous when he saw her talking with other men, said one of her friends, who only gave her first name, Rosa. After they separated, he started calling her cell phone.

“She said that he was aggressive, and she was a little scared, but never enough to think this [would happen],” Rosa said. "She said he wanted her to live with him but she said she didn’t want to be with him. She said she didn’t want him to know where she lived.”

“Such a good person she was,” Rosa said, wiping away tears after learning Rodriguez died in the hospital. “A really good mother. She loved her children. She would do everything for them.”

Rodriguez, who worked on hair and make-up at the salon, is survived by two young sons, one 8 years old and the other a toddler, Rosa said.

“She was a magnificent person. None of us could think this would happen, not [even] her," Rosa said.

Cops took her 39-year-old attacker into custody. He also went to Elmhurst hospital with a cut on his arm.

The husband’s name has not been released, and charges are pending, cops said.

It is what they used, just a little tone deaf. It's funny that this is what passes as acceptable in this backwards culture, but fire and brimstone falls from the sky if a bare breast happens to pop out.
