65 year old Richard Patterson killed Francisca Marquinez, 60. The man who claimed his girlfriend accidentally died by choking on his penis during oral has been found not guilty of murder, CNN reports Tuesday.
Richard Patterson, was charged with second-degree murder in the October 2015 death of his girlfriend.
Marquinez’s body was discovered decomposing sometime after her death, Patterson did not immediately call 911 but instead called his ex. girlfriend and his daughter.
Marquinez’s cause of death was never determined, and medical examiners did said she could have died during the sex act, at least one told jurors it was unlikely she died accidentally.
“If she can’t breathe, she usually start kicking or biting or to do something to prevent this blocking of the airway, try to open this airway. It’s normal reaction of any person,” according to Associate Broward County Medical Examiner Louri Boiko.
In another shocking turn in this case case the defense asked that the jury be shown the defendant’s penis to be able to have a clear picture of what took place.
The defense rested before the judge could decide whether his penis needed to be shown.
