Two people accused of murdering two Illinois men, then having sex on top of the bodies were unable to orgasm during the corpse-side intercourse, according to a newly released police interview.
Alisa Massaro and Joshua Miner were accused in the strangulation deaths of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins, both 22, in Joliet, Illinois, back in January. Two others, Adam Landerman and Bethany McKee, were also accused in the murder.
Police said Glover and Rankins were lured to Massaro’s apartment, where they were robbed and strangled to death. Police also said Miner, 24, asked the 18-year-old Massaro to have sex with him atop the freshly deceased bodies.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/16/joliet-murder-suspects-we_n_2487962.htmlfrien
In a videotaped police interview played in court Thursday, Miner — whose trial began Tuesday — claimed that Massaro was the one to suggest the sex, the Chicago Sun Times reports.
“She’s like, ‘Let’s have sex,’” Miner said. “And I was like, ‘Let’s have sex on the bodies.’”
Miner continued that they ultimately ended up having sex next to the bodies, not on them, but “We both couldn’t get off, plus it was weird.”
The two victims were “friends” with their killers, officials said. Miner said in the taped police interview that the four always planned on robbing the victims, but not killing them. Before the planned robbery ever took place, he said they were all “hanging out” and playing video games with Glover and Rankins, but that things turned violent after one of the men tried to sexually assault McKee.
Massaro and McKee, however, testified that the attack was planned, and that Miner and Landerman signaled to them to leave the room before they strangled Glover and Rankins to death. McKee admitted in court to trying to help cover up the crime, and said both women took part in beating the bodies with a liquor bottle and shouting racial slurs.
Cops said Massaro confessed to having sex on the bodies, but she later denied it in court.
Massaro, Miner, Landerman and McKee were all charged with first-degree murder in the incident. In August, Massaro pleaded guilty to robbery and concealing a homicidal death in a plea deal that landed her a 10-year prison sentence, according to ABC 7. The same month, McKee was convicted of murder.
Landerman’s pre-trial hearing took place on Thursday, WJOL reports, while Miner’s trial is ongoing.
