NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a Florida man told other jail inmates he had sex with a Maine woman’s corpse after killing her.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office released a statement Friday saying Timothy Frederick Johnson faced a first-degree murder charged in the death of 52-year-old Judith Therianos of Alfred, Maine.
Johnson was jailed on a probation violation when he was arrested Thursday in Therianos’ death.
An affidavit says the 25-year-old told other inmates he killed Therianos while they had intercourse March 13, stole her debit card to buy beer and a meal and then continued having sex with her corpse.
Sheriff Chris Nocco told reporters that Johnson and Therianos met at a liquor store.
Authorities found Therianos’ remains April 7 in wooded area near a highway in New Port Richey.
