Deadly duel ends love triangle as Brooklyn woman's live-in boyfriend attacks her homeless lover

Catalina Hernandez is scolded by her mom, Catalina Ocasio, after deadly love triangle

From the Daily News by Mark Lebetkin and Jonathan Lemire:

A feud between a Brooklyn woman's two beaus came to a bloody end as her live-in boyfriend plunged a knife into the chest of her homeless lover, police said Sunday.

Catalina Hernandez, the woman at the center of the violent love triangle, said that Michael Lebron walked from his shelter to her Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment at 10:30 p.m. Saturday and screamed for her on-again, off-again boyfriend to show himself.

"[He yelled] 'I ain't no p---y!'" Hernandez, 24, told the Daily News yesterday. "'I'm going to kill you; we're going to finish this tonight.'"

Pedro Marquez (pictured above), the father of one of Hernandez's five children, leaned out her Mother Gaston Blvd. apartment window and accepted the challenge, the shaken woman said.

"Let's see who's going to die tonight!" Marquez shouted in Spanish, according to Hernandez. "He said, 'One of us got to die. One of us got to die.'"

Marquez, 46, emerged from the apartment building holding a kitchen knife and ran toward Lebron, police and witnesses said.

Lebron, 40, staggered backward to pick up an orange traffic cone to defend himself - but the cone was bolted to the sidewalk, neighbors said.

Marquez stabbed his romantic rival several times in the chest, police said.

Hernandez held Lebron's hand as he was put in an ambulance, but he died minutes later at Brookdale University Hospital.

"[Pedro] just went at him and killed him," Hernandez said.

Marquez was charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

From a holding cell at the 73rd Precinct, Marquez allegedly penned an apologetic letter to Hernandez.

"I'm sorry for what happened, but that's life," Marquez wrote in the letter, which Hernandez translated from its original Spanish and read to The News. "Cathy, if you only knew how much I love you," she read. "You fulfill my heart."

Investigators said Lebron was living in a shelter after he was thrown out of his home by his fiancée, who visited the murder scene yesterday to berate Hernandez.

Hernandez, however, defended both of the men vying for her affections.

"Mike knew how to treat a woman. He was just trying to show me regular love," Hernandez said.

"But Pedro's not a bad person. He was just filled with rage and jealousy."
