According to police, Pernesky was in a room at the Motel 6 on Buell Road near the airport when his 40-year-old girlfriend, Jennifer Baker, died of a heroin overdose.

Instead of calling for help before her death, or alerting anyone afterward, investigators said Pernesky hid the drugs, wrapped the victim's body up in sheets and left.
