Exclusive: David Meza (a.k.a. Sean Cody’s Francisco) Sentenced To Life In Prison For Murdering Sugar Daddy In Mexico

Posted December 11, 2017 by with 32 comments

03Str8UpGayPorn first reported on David Enrique Meza’s (a.k.a. Sean Cody’s Francisco) arrest for stabbing to death Jake Merendino in Mexico two years ago. Then, in May of this year, Meza (who also performed as gay porn star “Mario Romo” for studios like NextDoor and MormonBoyz) was convicted of that murder, while his girlfriend Taylor Marie Langston (who helped Meza attempt to cover up the murder) accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison for obstructing justice.

Today, Meza’s sentencing hearing was held in San Diego, California, and Str8UpGayPorn can report that the former gay-for-pay porn star has been sentenced to life in prison for murdering his wealthy lover. In addition to life in federal prison for murdering Merendino (seen below, right), Meza also received a concurrent sentence of 20 years in prison for conspiracy to obstruct justice after the murder.

romoAs previously reported, prosecutors proved that Meza murdered Merendino with the intent of then inheriting millions of dollars from the wealthy Texas man’s estate. During trial, prosecutors presented multiple forms of evidence, including Meza’s prostitution ads and gay porn videos, handwritten letters from Meza to Merendino, DNA samples, and photos of the couple in Mexico. In May of 2015, Meza slashed Merendino’s throat and stabbed him over 20 times in the chest and stomach, then dumped his body in a Mexican ravine.

david-enrique-meza-and-taylor-marie-langstonBefore killing him, Meza—with help from Langston (as seen above)—convinced Merendino to name him as his sole heir in a handwritten will. Then, shortly after Merendino’s murder, Meza brought the will to the victim’s Texas lawyer in an attempt to claim an inheritance as Merendino’s sole heir.

Following Jason Andrews (a.k.a. Sean Cody’s Addison), Meza becomes the second Sean Cody porn star sentenced to life in prison for murdering a gay man, and he’ll likely appeal his conviction. Girlfriend Langston, who gave birth to Meza’s daughter in 2015, is scheduled to be released from prison in December of 2018.

    Jeeze…

    Think it was worth it douchebag? Idiot.

  • Scrapple

    Instead of celebrating the fact they were about to bring new life into the world, they conspired to take the life of someone else. For money. I’d call them animals but that would be an insult to animals.

    If only Meza had checkout out “The Long Arm of the Law”, a collection of classic police stories, first. Being well read can make the difference. Now, he has nothing but time to catch up on this and other fascinating tales of crimes gone wrong!

    Leave these gigolos alone!!! It’s not worth it!!! Or at least do your homework and don’t go falling in love

  • The gay green lartern

    Pobrecito …what a life wasted and the poor man that was murdered and for what just a little bit of money… and that poor child they are leaving behind…sad sad all around ..
    This is a lose/lose situation

    he looks older than the sugar daddy

  • WhimsyCotton

    The unspoken victim here will be that child. He’ll have to grow up knowing his mother and father are murderers. Imagine being scolded, being told to be good, and being told to follow the rules by a killer.

    • Zealot

      Wondering if the baby is in the custody of the mother’s relatives, or with the state? If it’s with the state, she should not automatically regain custody. More than likely she will have to work an individualized plan of care which I would think should automatically require parenting classes, mental health assessment and to demonstrate that she can provide a safe, stable home for the child. She would have supervised visits to assess her parenting ability– which would include successful completion of probation terms and keeping herself away from any criminal elements and behaviors. I’m usually an advocate of parents having an ability to work their plan and regain rights to their children, but in her case I’m almost convinced finding the baby an adoptive home would ensure a better future for it. Not knowing the child’s custody status, it’s a moot point I guess.

    Who was he at Mormonboyz?

  • Danny Boi

    LOL gay guys wanna keep going for men with huge dicks and hot bodies over personality and having your life together, so they get killed. Oh fucking well boo hoo.

    • John Singleton

      You sound a bit bitter my dear.. You must be one of them

    • Nordschleife

      I get your point but it’s a little insensitive.

    • YandyDandy

      I would hardly say he was big dicked, his body aint all that and his face was one only his mother or murderous girlfriend could love. At least another good for nothing, dumb parasite is off the streets. I am sure he will enjoy his -gay for no pay in prison.

  • Hereweare

    So………after slashing the throat, stabbing 20 times, and leaving the body in a ditch of the man who thought they were at the very least friends, but most likely thought they were lovers, the taxpayers now get to foot the bill for lifelong housing, food, & medical care for this animal. What’s the $ figure for that?

    • Mango

      It is less costly than the death penalty.

      • Hereweare

        I’ve heard that before, and if it’s true that the cost of one syringe of liquid is higher than a lifetime of support, then our drug costs are more out of control than we thought. Perhaps it’s our methods that need re-thinking. One bullet would be a bargain.

        • it’s not the actual execution that is costly, but the legal procedure and the death row

          • Hereweare

            How so? There’s a trial regardless of the verdict, and the inmate is in prison whether on death row or not.

  • Ninja0980

    Good riddance!

  • I mean most porn “stars” aren’t known to be the brightest bulbs in the aisle. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5d31d25aeb26ae5544d5e9bc1abf2a39165f64e0c8a95d196a221dcfae3a7a4f.gif

    This is the stupidest crime ever. Sad, but also very stupid. Did they not think this would look the least bit suspicious. Get his checkbook or credit card while he’s sleeping. Hell, extort him like Jarek. But murder?

    g4p = death
