A New Jersey man got the shock of his life when he arrived home on Monday to find his wife and her alleged lover, the couple’s mechanic, dead in their garage from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Kahali Johnson walked into his Newark home and discovered his wife Tameka Hargrave and the unidentified mechanic lying on the floor next to a running vehicle around 9 p.m.

Johnson said he went to investigate after an alarm went off due to a strong odor of gas in the couple’s apartment. The smell of exhaust prompted Johnson to search further, leading him to the garage.

“Basically she died because of carbon monoxide,” Johnson said. “They do not have adequate alarm systems, because if there had been an alarm in that garage, people would have been alerted to the fact that it was going on.”

“As I tried to step to open the last garage door, I see the mechanic, he’s laid out,” Johnson said in an interview with WABC. “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.”

Authorities believe that Hargrave may have exchanged sex for car repairs, but they believe at this time that the deaths were accidental.

    Ok. Nobody is curious how a mechanic dies of carbon monoxide poisoning in a car. Pleeeeeze. He wasn’t a good mechanic, but he must have been a better technician than the husband. I can’t be the only one that thinks there has to be more to it. Truth is stranger than fiction so I’ll give it a few weeks and see if the story holds up. Inquiring minds want to know the following: were they found clothed? How did the husband know that was her lover? The husband had no idea before this “alleged accident” that a fifty something year old was laying down pipe on his thirty something year old wife? The husband’s alibi must be tight. On a serious note, my condolences to the family. Their kids will need counseling because it’s bad to lose a parent, but it has to be horrifying and embarrassing to lose a loved one with that headline.

      You and me both!!! Am I missing something from this article? How did the husband or law enforcement conclude the two were lovers? Were they naked in the garage were they had finished their dalliance? Was there evidence of a liaison in the couple’s bedroom (i.e., tousled bedcovers, clothes left by the mechanic)? I haven’t even gotten to the fact they said how she was paying for the mechanic repairs. So many unanswered questions or maybe I’ve been watching ID channel or Law & Order SVU to believe this could be a “accident”. I would look at the husband for his alibi.
