A middle aged woman has be accused of murder after the decomposing corpse of her boyfriend was found on her porch.

Tammy Shereese Wright-Conner, 41,  from Jacksonville, Florida, has been charged with murder after the decomposed body of boyfriend, Ronald Trotter, 48, was found in her porch covered in plastic bags and surrounded with air freshener.

The body which was so decomposed, it was difficult ascertaining the sex as it was discovered in the sealed room after about a week and a half in temperatures of 35C.


Trotter, who died from a gunshot wound to the chest, is believed to have gone to Wright-Conner’s house after having a row with his wife during a family outing on May 25.

His wife reported him missing on May 30and told police that she believed he had gone to his girlfriend’s house.

Air fresheners reportedly filled the room in a rather mild attempt to mask the smell when animal control officers discovered the scene, after they were called in by neighbors who believed there was a dead animal on the property.

Police Lt. Steve Gallaher, of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, said that at least one of Wright-Conner’s friends reported that she had asked for help to move the body.
