  • You really need to provide more context than a single sentence. The sentence is odd and the meaning will relate to whatever it came from. – fixer1234 Jun 3 '17 at 8:43

That sounds poetic. Basically it means something along the lines of:

Who was that [expletive deleted] who broke my heart?

In poetry, having ones life ended by a woman is idiomatic to having your heart torn out and stomped on unmercifully.
