Autopsy Shows Woman Strangled, Found Naked In Bed

An autopsy says a Marine wife, who was found strangled to death, was found by police lying naked in her bed.

Cody Richardson was kicked out of the Marine Corps after his September 21st arrest for killing his wife at their Jacksonville apartment. The autopsy says Richardson confessed to killing Jessy Richardson with a belt, and then leaving her body in the apartment for two days.

The autopsy says the 21-year-old woman died from asphyxiation by strangulation. It says the woman's body had several bruises on it, including her lower lip, lower back, thigh, knees, ankles and on the right shoulder. The autopsy says there were faint markings of a belt on the woman's neck, compatible with a belt found in the couple's apartment.

The husband remains in jail on a $1-million bond.
