STATE OF SHOCK

FL Teen Killed Friend Who Sexually Assaulted Him In His Sleep

A high-school student from New Port Richey, Florida, has been charged with second-degree murder after he shot a friend he claims performed oral sex on him while he was asleep.

On Monday, Marcus Wilson, 18, was arrested after police found the body of Christopher Ashton Martin, 30, who had gone frinking with Wilson in Starkey Wilderness Park on May 13  (Martin’s birthday). Wilson claims he fell asleep on a picnic table and when he awoke, Martin was fellating him. Wilson kicked Martin to the ground and shot him, then fled in Martin’s car.

Before he left, though, Wilson cleaned up the campsite, took Martin’s wallet and covered the body with a sleeping bag.

With no witnesses, it’s hard to say whether Martin tried to rape his friend, whether Wilson consented or if any sexual contact even happened. And there’s no indication lethal force was required to fend off the attack. At the same time, you can’t expect someone to act perfectly sensibly if  they wake up to being sexually assaulted.
It’s an ugly and sad situation all around.
