David Meza Sentenced To Life
We have, what’s hopefully, the final update on the David Enrique Meza murder case.
Meza was once a gay-for-pay adult film star who appeared on sites and studios like Sean Cody, Cocksure, and Mormon Boyz under aliases like Francisco, Marlo Romo, and Gonzalez.
Earlier this year, the 26-year-old was charged with the murder of his wealthy gay lover, named Jake Merendino, and the coverup of said murder, which happened in Mexico back in 2015.
In addition, his wife was also convicted for being a willing partner in the coverup as well.
But now, there’s even more to the story.
As Str8UpGayPorn reports (warning, site is NSFW), Meza was officially sentenced in a hearing today in San Diego, California.
The former porn star has been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of 51-year-old Jake Merendino. On top of that, his second charge of conspiracy to obstruct justice by trying to coverup the murder has added an addition 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors proved in court that Meza, and his wife, killed Merendino in order to then inherit the victims millions of dollars.
Before the murder, Meza, and his wife, convinced the rich Texan man to name Meza as his sole heir in a handwritten will (which Meza brought to Merendino’s lawyer shortly after his death).
The way that they proved this was by showing multiple pieces of evidence such as handwritten letters from Meza to Meredino, DNA samples, and photos of the victim and assailant.
This then led to Meza stabbing Merendino over 20 times in the chest and stomach, slashing his throat, and dumping the body in a Mexican ravine.
Again, David Enrique Meza is sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison, but his wife, who recently gave birth to their daughter, will be released from prison in December of next year.
