Federal Heights, Adams County, Colorado, USA : 45-year-old Dayna Jennings, has been charged with killing her father – identified as 69-year-old William “Bill” Mussack – and tampering with his body, after he was found dead inside of a Federal Heights home. Police say Dayna Jennings lived with Mussack in his home.
On Dec. 7, William Mussack’s son got one of the last text messages he would ever receive from his father, who was disturbed by what happened after he received a back rub from his daughter in the home they shared.
“William described the feeling of being drugged and falling asleep in a recliner chair for 15 hours,” a portion of an arrest affidavit from Federal Heights Police reads. “He recalled taking a bite from a hamburger, and the hamburger was still on an end table with one bite taken out of it when he awoke.”
On Jan. 10, Mussack’s body was found encased in concrete in a crawlspace in his home. His daughter, 45-year-old Dayna Jennings, was taken into custody that same day.
Dayna Jennings was formally charged with first-degree murder after deliberation and tampering with a deceased human body on Tuesday, according to a news release from the 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
The 45-year-old was arrested on Thursday – one day after Federal Heights Police obtained a search warrant for the home at 10222 Eliot Circle where her father’s body was found.
