A man returned to his Newark, N.J., home Monday night to find his wife and the mechanic she was having sex with dead after they were overcome by carbon monoxide in the couple’s garage, a police department source told NJ Advance Media.
The 39-year-old woman was apparently paying for work on her car by having sex with the 56-year-old mechanic, the source said.
The woman’s husband, Kahali Johnson, told ABC that he found his wife, Tameka Hargrave, after he smelled a strong odor of gas in his apartment and went to investigate the source.
On Monday night, Newark police spokeswoman Catherine Adams said police responded to the apartment complex at 18th and New Fairview avenues on a call of “sick or injured persons” just before 8:45 p.m.
Adams said officers discovered the man and woman in a running vehicle inside the closed garage, and that both were pronounced dead at the scene
