Gay porn star still in custody nearly a year after being charged with murdering older wealthy lover

Porn star Mario Romo found guilty of murder

A gay-for-pay porn star has spent 10 months in custody after being accused of brutally stabbing his wealthy lover to death.

Mario Romo, who started his career at Sean Cody as ‘Francisco’ in 2010, is indicted on multiple charges following the murder of Texas retiree Jake Clyde Merendino.

The 52-year-old had named 25-year-old Romo – legal name David Enrique Meza – as his heir before the killing.

According to FBI records obtained by Str8UpGayPorn (NSFW), Merendino and Mesa rented a car in Spring Valley and drove into Mexico so the wealthy Texas property magnate could close escrow on a $300,000 oceanfront condo at Palacio del Mar.

Federal authorities claim on 29 April 2015 the couple checked into Bobby’s By The Sea hotel, not far from the new condo.

Meza and Langston

When the victim came down to the lobby between 7pm and 8pm, on 1 May,

Merendino was stabbed over 20 times in the chest and stomach, as well as his throat being slashed.

That night, footage shows Meza’s girlfriend Taylor Marie Langston crossing the US border in a black SUV with no licence plate.

Langston offered an alibi she was visiting a mutual friend of her and Meza’s. The friend however denied the meeting.

Meza then claimed the two were planning on rob Merendino, but they got cold feet. They deny the murder.

The porn star faces life in prison if convicted on all counts, and Langston faces up to 20 years.

A status hearing is set for 14 October.
