(NEW YORK POST) – A jealous boyfriend in Arizona is accused of killing his girlfriend because he was “upset” about her outfit, authorities said.

Martin Larney, of Mesa, was arrested Monday in the shooting death of his 22-year-old girlfriend, Alina Duwyenie, AZCentral reported.

Police said Larney, 22, changed his story twice before confessing to shooting Duwyenie on Sunday morning at his apartment over her clothing choice.

Officers responded to the scene around 8:30 a.m. on reports of an accidental shooting. They rushed Duwyenie to a local hospital, where she died.

Larney’s brother was home at the time of the incident and told investigators that he heard a “loud noise.”

“[The brother] ran into the room and found the defendant sitting next to the victim holding her head where she was injured,” the police report stated.

Larney admitted to authorities that he owned the gun, which he said he purchased a month earlier for protection. The loaded weapon accidentally fired, he claimed, when he threw the firearm across the couch.

The boyfriend, however, then changed his story and claimed that he was attempting to load the gun when a shot fired.

Ultimately, he confessed to gunning down his girlfriend because he was “jealous and upset at [her] for what she was wearing,” according to police.

Larney was arrested and booked at Maricopa County Jail, where his bond is set at $750,000.
