On Wednesday, Marquise Robinson and Aaron Wright, two ex-Temple University police officer were found guilty in the death of Joyce Quaweay, Wright’s girlfriend.
According to the official police report, Quaweay was sharing the house with Wright, Robinson, his girlfriend, and several children. On more than one occasion, Wright and his partner would bet Quaweay and other family members, including Robinson’s cousin.
However, in July 2016, the domestic abuse took an entirely different turn. Based on Wright’s confession, he and Robison dragged Quaweay to the basement, removed her clothes, and handcuffed her to a weight bench.
After that, the two former Temple University police officer began beating the woman with a police baton. The two stopped after realizing that the woman became unconscious.
Realizing that Quaweay passed away due to her injuries, Wright decided to call the authorities. Upon arriving at the former police officer’s house, the Temple University law enforcement agents saw Wright sitting in front of the house.
The man told them that he was the one who killed the 24-year-old. Both suspects were taken into custody and charged with murder.
Following the incident, a friend of the family told the investigators that the beatings went on for some time and that the woman was thinking about leaving the abusive man but was too afraid to take the step.
At the time of Quaweay’s death, none of the house’s occupants were injured. The coroner’s office reported that the woman’s cause of death was heart failure.
