Man Who Had Pregnant Fiancée Was Convicted Of Murdering His Wealthy Boyfriend: He Did ‘Gay Things’ For Money

A San Diego man was convicted of murdering his wealthy boyfriend by stabbing him 24 times and dumping him off a cliff, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

David Meza, 26, brought his boyfriend Jake Merendino, 51, to the side of a road in Mexico in 2015 and repeatedly stabbed him, gutted him, and slashed his neck, prosecutors said. The older man was then dropped off the side of a cliff.

Prosecutors argued that Meza killed his boyfriend in order to inherit about $3.27 million in property, including a $273,000 ocean condo that Merendino had just purchased the day before.

Meza and Merendino met in 2013 after Meza posted an online ad saying that he was straight but did “gay things” for money. The two began a relationship in which Meza received money and expensive gifts from Merendino.

But, unbeknownst to Merendino, Meza had a girlfriend, Taylor Langston, who would became his fiancée. He

Mother And Boyfriend Accused Of Murdering 3-Year-Old Boy, Encasing His Body In Concrete

The body of a 3-year-old boy was discovered encased in concrete at a Wichita, Kansas home back in September. Now, the child’s mother and her boyfriend are being charged with first-degree murder. On Tuesday, Miranda Miller and Stephen Bodine were charged for Evan Brewer’s death, according to The New York Times. The couple is expected to appear in court this week, and at this time, it is unclear if they have lawyers who can speak on their behalf.

A landlord discovered Brewer’s body while cleaning out the home after Miller and Bodine had moved out. According to The New York Times, the landlord noticed a foul smell exuding through a concrete structure in the home. The couple, however, was already in jail on prior, unrelated charges, and each of them are now being held on $500,000 bail.

Evan’s dad, Carlo Brewer, was concerned about

A woman from Edgewater, Florida allegedly stabbed an off-duty deputy, who tried to de-escalate a fight between her and her ex-boyfriend after she set his house on fire over a teddy bear. Brittany Bonin, 26, is now facing assault, battery and arson charges, according to WFTV.

According to WFTV, Williams tried to protect the victim from Bonin but ended up getting stabbed in his lower back in the process.
