A twisted love triangle within the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation ended with all three players dead Tuesday night.

Thirty-eight-year-old Arabella Bradford, a current parole agent in the Riverside department, lived across the street from 48-year-old ex-fiance Virgil Millon, a former lieutenant from the same department.

They had reportedly purchased Bradford's house together in 2005, located in a gated, well-off Riverside community. But a teen neighbor told the Los Angeles Times that…

… right after Bradford's new boyfriend, 43-year-old Chino correctional officer Malvin Conley, decided to move in with her, Bradford's ex, in what appears to have been a jealous rage, crossed the street and fired multiple rounds at the couple. The neighbor said the U-Haul was still parked out front.

Both Bradford and her new lover died at the scene. Millon, the killer, was shot dead by a Riverside police officer soon after.

Screwed-up new details keep emerging. The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that Bradford and Millon had a “turbulent” relationship before their messy 2008-09 sort-of breakup — in which the woman was actually the violent one.
