Porn star enters plea in 2010 Pasco sex party slaying

NEW PORT RICHEY — A porn actor accused with her boyfriend of killing a tattoo parlor owner during a sex party pleaded guilty this morning to a reduced charge that will get her 40 years in prison.
Amanda Logue, who appeared in adult films as “Sunny Dae,” entered the plea as part of an agreement with prosecutors. She was originally charged with first-degree murder but was allowed to plead to second-degree murder as part of the deal.
Her plea came after her boyfriend, Jason Andrews, the pornographic actor accused of killing tattoo parlor owner Dennis “Scooter” Abrahamsen in 2010, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in January. Andrews, 28, agreed to spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Logue did not speak during the hearing, but answered Circuit Judge Michael Andrews with “yes sir” and “no sir” when he asked her questions, such as whether she had made her plea voluntarily.
A cousin of Abrahamsen who spoke during the hearing called Logue “evil” and said she didn’t deserve a plea deal.
“You’re not a person,” said Donna Rella. Only an evil person would have “planned and schemed to kill my cousin.”
She said she was surprised to learn that Logue has children.
“He had a family,” Rella said of Abrahamsen. “You have taken him away from us all.”
Abrahamsen was found dead in May 2010 on a massage table in his house in New Port Richey. The 41-year-old biker and tattoo parlor owner had been stabbed and bludgeoned after hosting a sex party at his house the night before, authorities said.
Detectives say his killers were Logue, a then-28-year-old porn actor hired as a prostitute for the party, and her boyfriend Andrews, a DJ and adult film actor. Authorities said that while Logue was inside “servicing” Abrahamsen, Andrews waited outside, waiting for word to strike. The couple exchanged a flurry of text messages leading up to the attack:
“I’m so glad you’re really commited (sic) to this take. Keep eyes for a knife, etc for me!” Andrews wrote to Logue, records show.
Logue wrote that she wanted to have sex with Andrews “after we kill” Abrahamsen.
“Just get him on his face either bash or tell me to get in and where to go,” Andrews wrote.
Authorities say the couple stole $6,000 in cash from Abrahamsen’s house, along with cameras and a laptop. They were arrested a few days later on charges of stealing $67.97 worth of clothes from Beall’s in Largo. Detectives then questioned them about the murder, but both were released on bail. By the time Logue was arrested on the murder charge May 27, 2010, Andrews had vanished.
Two months later, U.S. Marshals tracked Andrews to Chattanooga, Tenn., where his brother and a friend had just helped him line up a job at an upscale cigar lounge.
Andrews, who applied using his real name and Social Security number, had impressed the managers through three rigorous interviews.
Logue, now 30, had been slated to go on trial this week for first-degree murder. She remains at the Land O’Lakes jail without bail.
