Continuing – Lynn Nicole Feurer

Nicole Feurer Joseph Cupita

In Joseph Cupita’s last moments, his live-in companion was kneeling on his chest, suffocating him, and smothering his face with a pillow as the 81-year-old man grappled for his life, according to a picture painted by a prosecutor during a preliminary hearing for Lynne Nicole Feurer on Friday.

Prosecutor Elaine McCleaf presented witnesses who said tiny hemorrhages in Cupita’s face and chest areas showed he died of asphyxiation. Bite wounds on his hands and arms and scratches from his own fingernails on his face indicated he was trying to fight off his attacker when he died. There was also blood on his pillow, according to testimony.
