Kahali Johnson, from New Jersey found his wife dead alongside her mechanic lover who both had been reportedly having sex in a running car on Monday night.
The man told ABC that he returned home Monday night to find his wife and the mechanic she was having sex with dead before calling the police just before 9pm.
According to Johnson, he went to investigate after a strong gas odour filled his apartment and found the pair ‘laid out’. He said when he found them, they were both outside the car, which they left running.
‘As I tried to open the last garage door, I see the mechanic, he’s laid out,’ he said.
‘She’s just a few feet away, she’s laid out. And pretty much I had to call 911, because at this time, with that level of emissions, I knew that they were gone.’
Law enforcement sources also confirmed to NBC that the woman, 39-year-old Tameka Hargrave and the 56-year-old man believed to be her mechanic, had died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
The sources said the deaths were accidental and they believed Hargrave had been paying the man to fix her car by having sex with him.
