IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A court document says a man accused of killing a woman at a Coralville mall told officers he “snapped” after getting a text from the woman that said she was breaking off their relationship.

Twenty-two-year-old Alexander Kozak has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the fatal shooting of 20-year-old Andrea Farrington at Coral Ridge Mall on June 12. His trial is set to begin April 12.

He worked as a mall security guard but quit his job earlier in the day. She worked at a children’s museum kiosk at the mall.

An officer says in a warrant application made public Tuesday that Kozak said after his arrest “that he snapped and went back to his residence in North Liberty” to get his gun.
