Army veteran Jason Kendall is charged with the murder of Larissa Garcia during a $2,000 hotel session in Las Vegas. Garcia, a mother of two, was strangled and killed at the Palms Resort.

Las Vegas, Bollywood Fever: Larissa Garcia, a 30-year-old mother, was murdered on June 12 during a $2,000 hotel session with Army veteran Jason Kendall at the Palms Resort in Las Vegas. Kendall, 35, turned himself in to authorities on June 28.

According to a police report obtained by 8NewsNow, Kendall claimed Garcia requested additional payment, causing him to “snap.” He confessed to hitting her and choking her for ten minutes before having sex with her. Afterward, he dragged her away from the door and left, later calling the police to report an overdose.

Kendall is now in custody without bail, facing charges of open murder, sexual assault, and battery. An anonymous 911 call reported an overdose in the hotel room, prompting security to find Garcia on the floor with a cut on her jaw.

Paramedics initially believed Garcia was overdosing, but doctors at Spring Valley Hospital found no alcohol or drugs in her system. Instead, her injuries suggested she was a victim of battery. “Upon further inspection… it looks like she was assaulted,” a nurse told the dispatcher.
