In the months after she graduated from Spruce Creek High School in 2005, McKensie Morrison was charged with cocaine possession, got married, lived without electricity and watched her husband beat a 75-year-old man with a hammer.Update: More from Daytona Beach News-Journal:
Today, Morrison's life beyond Central Florida has her front-and-center in a political sex scandal in Tennessee and involved in another criminal investigation.
According to Volusia County court records, Morrison married Randy Mueller, a former Spruce Creek basketball player, when she was 18. The couple quickly began having financial problems and occasionally showered and ate dinner at the home of a 75-year-old Daytona Beach man Morrison had met at a bookstore. In August 2005, the man drove the couple home after dinner and offered Morrison $50 for sex while the car was parked in the couple's driveway, according to her court testimony. After she said no, Morrison said he ripped her shorts, she testified. Mueller, who was in the back seat, tried to get the man off his wife, found a hammer in the back seat of the man's car and repeatedly hit him on the head. Mueller was later convicted of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He is serving a seven-year prison term in Florida. Court records show he filed for divorce about a month ago.
