The O.C. Register reports that 52-year old Thomas Michael Wilhelm, 52, got drunk and listened to Guns N’ Roses’ track “Used to Love Her” before he allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend, a prosecutor said.

“Trial began Wednesday in Orange County Superior Court for Thomas Michael Wilhelm, 52, who is accused of shooting his girlfriend, 45-year-old Christine Marie Murray, in 2012 after their relationship and business partnership soured.

Prosecutors accuse Wilhelm of plotting to kill Murray as revenge for taking over his long-time sprinkler business, while the defense says Wilhelm suffered from mental-health issues and was clouded by alcohol and extreme emotion over the loss of his business.”

Guns N’ Roses “Used to Love Her” lyrics:

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I had to put her, six feet under, and I can still hear her complain

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I knew I’d miss her, so I had to keep her
She’s buried right in my back yard

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, but I had to kill her
She bitched so much. She drove me nuts, and now I’m happier this way
I used to love her, but I had to kill her, and I can still hear her complain
