VERO BEACH, FL- It was Kevin Adorno`s most memorable week. He was attempting a 1,000 mile bike ride from Maryland to Florida just to propose to his girlfriend. But this ride came to a tragic end.

While Kevin was outside a McDonalds talking on the phone to his girlfriend, Rene Cruz overheard his conversation and for some odd reason thought Kevin was ordering a hit on his life.

So Rene took matters into his own hands and stabbed Kevin killing him.

Police were able to arrest Rene, who is behind bars, charged with first-degree murder. But Kevin`s family and girlfriend are still grieving over this romance story gone horribly wrong,
