Married Woman and Alleged Lover Die in Carbon Monoxide Accident

I imagine a spouse would have a number of emotions upon learning that their better half was cheating on them but had also just passed away. I mean how do you process that sort of information? 

A woman who died inside her Newark garage had reportedly been having sex in a running car with her mechanic lover when her body was found by her husband on Monday night. Law enforcement sources told NBC the woman, 39-year-old Tameka Hargrave and a 56-year-old man believed to be her mechanic, had died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

The sources said they believed Hargrave had been paying the man to fix her car by having sex with him. Her husband, Kahali Johnson, told ABC he found their bodies inside the garage, along with had been left running in a closed garage, and called police just before 9pm.

Johnson said he went to investigate after a strong gas odour entered his apartment before 9pm on Monday, and found the pair 'laid out'. He claimed when he found them, they were both outside the car, which had been left running.

'As I tried to open the last garage door, I see the mechanic, he's laid out,' Johnson said.'She's just a few feet away, she's laid out. And pretty much I had to call 911, because at this time, with that level of emissions, I knew that they were gone.' 

Police arrived at the apartment complex and pronounced Hargrave and the mechanic dead. Newark police spokesperson Catherine Adams said the deaths “appeared to be accidental.” "This incident is under investigation, but appears to be accidental," Adams said.

On the other hand it is rather convenient for a cheating spouse to have a fatal "accident" isn't it. I know that the prospect of sex, especially the forbidden fruit of adultery, can make people do stupid things but what sort of mechanic doesn't know that leaving a car running in an enclosed unvented space is beyond stupid? I mean wouldn't the wife and the mechanic have noticed the smell even if they were busy getting busy? Seems like it to me. If there's no foul play involved then maybe this is just instant karma getting someone as John Lennon sang. 
Or perhaps the husband or someone else is just so diabolical that he or she saw the perfect opportunity to be rid of an untrustworthy partner. This story is like coming home to find that someone who lives alone shot himself four times in the head before slitting his throat. Well maybe it did happen that way. But there might be more to the story. Maybe it was an accident. Maybe there was no adultery. I don't know. As a cynical co-worker said to me "At least Johnson got his car fixed."
