A Pennsylvania woman is in custody, and awaiting trial, after authorities discovered she staged a robbery to cover up the killing of her Sugar Daddy.
NBC Philadelphia reports that 33-year-old Jennifer Morrissey shot 64-year-old pharmaceutical executive Michael McNew after he threatened to cut her off financially. Morrissey reportedly went to his home, shot him in the face then asked her current boyfriend to urinate on her hand to cover up the gun powder residue. She then staged a robbery to cover up the crime.
Morrissey’s lawyer maintains the McNew’s death was the result of a struggle over a gun.
“She came to her home to retrieve some belongings and struggled over a firearm and Mr. McNew unfortunately was shot and killed,” Morrissey’s lawyer, Phillip Steinberg, said.
When first interviewed by police, Morrissey reportedly said her current boyfriend killed McNew but later confessed the crime to her cell mate.
Morrissey is due back in court Dec. 8.
