When a safe word is not a enough: man says mate died during rough sex



A Miami man is facing manslaughter charges in a case of rough sex turning deadly — if you believe his story, that is.

For two days, a Lake Worth man kept a woman’s body in his bed as he tried to figure out how to dispose of it and later he told authorities she had died during rough sex, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.Doris Lopez’s body was found inside a car parked at a Delray Beach parking lot on October 26th.

Three months since that discovery, police arrested 40-year-old David Muringer and have charged him with manslaughter in her death.

Allegedly, the couple had had sex before, in which he'd choked her during the act and she passed out.  In that case, she regained consciousness moments later.

It's called asphyxiophilla (the act in which people like to be choked during sex). People who enjoy the practice say it intensifies sexual arousal. There's nothing wrong with trying something new or kinky, but how do you know when enough is enough?

Muringer allegedly told authorities he had been casually dating 48-year-old Lopez, who was unemployed and lived in West Palm Beach. He told police he choked Lopez during sex, but said her death was accidental.  He said she lost consciousness once before and she had awakened moments later. However, on the night she died, her losing consciousness angered him and he threw her off the bed, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

He left the apartment and when he returned she remained on the floor dead. Muringer is being held without bond.

Muringer waited two days before allegedly stuffing her body in a plastic bag then pushing it into a cardboard barrel he had since childhood, according to the Delray Beach police report.

“He told us he sealed the barrel with duct tape, rolled the barrel out of his apartment and placed the barrel into the back seat of the victim’s car,” Delray Beach police Detective Jason Jabcuga wrote in the arrest report, which was quoted in the paper.

So, if you're going to have rough sex, try not to kill your partner. If your partner does die, however, take note: trying to dispose of his or her remains probably won't play well in front of the jury.
