A Utah man was charged with murder after he claimed “aggressive sex” killed his girlfriend.
Nathan Edwin Parry, 34, was booked on first degree murder charges and second degree felony obstruction of justice charges on Thursday, according to Deseret News.
Rebecca Michelle Sullivan, 41, was found dying from 'full cardiac arrest' on October 21. Authorities say Parry, Sullivan's alleged boyfriend, told a 911 dispatcher the two had 'placed restraints' on each other during an 'aggressive sex' session before both lost consciousness.
Sullivan received a full scholarship to Stanford University and graduated in 1999 with a degree in languages. She studied in France, according to her obituary, and later taught at West High School.
