A COUPLE accused of murder allegedly had sex in their victim’s bed while listening to her fight for her life in the other room, authorities believe.
Brinlee Denison, 25, and Nicholas Johnson, 28, were arrested after 29-year-old Sarah Maguire, was discovered unconscious at her home in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Tuesday.
According to an affidavit obtained by KNWA, police believe she had been brutally beaten to death with a crowbar after showing “obvious signs of trauma to her head and face.”
As an investigation opened, officers learnt from the victim’s family that her vehicle and her credit cards had been stolen.
The following day, the accused pair were found sleeping in her stolen car more than 100 miles away in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
After the couple were detained, both suspects reportedly gave a “full confession” to police as they revealed that they had planned the vicious assault and intended to fund their escape with the victim’s stolen car.
According to an affidavit, Johnson explained to cops that he and Denlison had been in an “intimate relationship” but was “jealous” of her connection with Maguire.
He then horrifically revealed that that they “had sex in the victim’s bed after the murder,” with full knowledge that Maguire was “struggling to live” in the room next door.

He added that Denison had helped him plan the murder in advance.
Johnson then allegedly told police how the couple had disposed of their worn clothing out of vehicle’s window as they fled the scene.
According to the affidavit, Denison also grabbed Maguire’s credit card and other electronic devices during their frantic gateway as she transferred funds to the pair’s own accounts.
The couple are now facing charges of first-degree murder and vehicle theft as police confirmed that they are being held on a $1 million bond.
And on Thursday, the sister of the victim, Jamie Maguire, issued a heart-breaking post on Facebook as she prayed that “justice is served.”
She wrote: “Our family has suffered a devastating blow this week.
“My sister Sarah has lost her life in a senseless act of violence. Please keep our family in your prayers as we navigate through this time.
“Rest assured justice is being served and we owe our greatest debt of gratitude to the Tulsa Police Department.”
