Jennifer Lynette McKinley, 28: Does Her Boyfriend a Favor and He Kills Her, Cops Say, Bayou Body Count No. 62
A woman who did a favor for her boyfriend ended up dead, Houston police say.
Jennifer Lynette McKinley, 28, had been called Friday night by her boyfriend, who asked her to give him a ride home from a bar because he was too drunk to drive, HPD said.
She took Erick Charles Erminger, 44, back to her Kingwood home. The couple began arguing and he killed her at 9:45 a.m. Saturday, police say, while McKinley's eight-year-old son slept in a nearby bedroom.
"The following morning, Erminger called his mother, saying he had killed McKinley and was going to commit suicide," police said. "Erminger's mother called 911 and went to her son's apartment, where responding HPD patrol officers arrested Erminger."
The child was taken to his biological father. Erminger has been charged with murder.
