A 30-year-old American killed his wife’s lover, 31, and then forced her to mutilate the body before leaving her hundreds of kilometers from her home with the victim’s body.

Armando and Britany Barron are in custody, facing charges of aggravated murder and tampering with evidence, respectively.

A 30-year-old American killed his wife’s lover, 31, and then forced her to mutilate the body before leaving her hundreds of kilometers from her home with the victim’s body.

As reported by the portal The Daily Beast, the events took place last Saturday in the town of Jaffrey, in the state of New Hampshire. Upon accidentally discovering messages of a loving nature on his wife’s phone, Armando Barren became enraged and beat the woman until she passed out. Then, she took Britany’s cell phone and, posing as her, wrote to her lover, Jonathan Arsenault, telling him to see each other that night.

Arriving together with his wife at the agreed park, Armando brutally beat Arsenault, 25, and ordered Britany to kill him. As the woman refused, she decided to kill the young man herself by shooting her three times.

To try to hide the traces of the crime, Armando transported Arsenault’s body to a camp located 360 kilometers from the city, in a car that forced his wife to drive, and once there he forced her to cut off the victim’s head with a Mountain range. After burying the head, the man left the place, leaving the woman with the responsibility of disposing of the rest of the body.

Armando was arrested while allegedly planning a getaway with his nine-year-old daughter, and is currently facing an aggravated murder charge.

For her part, the woman, who was found in the camp by forest rangers, is also in custody on charges of tampering with evidence.

During a court hearing on Friday, the woman’s attorney, Richard Guerriero, claimed that his client acted under pressure and should be placed under house arrest. However, the prosecutor, Scott Chase, maintained that Britany “cooperated” with Armando even “after she was apprehended” and decided to leave the woman in jail.
