Porn actor Logue gets 40 years in 2010 New Port Richey sex party slaying

NEW PORT RICHEY — When Pasco deputies arrested her in Georgia for her role in murdering a tattoo parlor owner during a sex party, a family friend described Amanda Kaye Logue as "a sweet person" who was influenced by her devil of a boyfriend.

"When the devil pops his head in, we succumb to what the devil wants us to do," Darryl Dobbs said in 2010.

On Monday, Logue, a porn actor and fetish model, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, a lesser charge than the first-degree murder charge she initially faced for the killing of Dennis "Scooter" Abrahamsen.

Logue and her boyfriend, Jason Andrews, smashed Abrahamsen's skull with a sledgehammer and stabbed him multiple times. The 41-year-old's body was found lying on a massage table in his New Port Richey home.

"You're not a person," his cousin, Donna Rella, told Logue in court Monday. "You're an evil being."

In exchange for her plea, Logue received a 40-year prison sentence. She could have received life in prison had she been convicted on the original charge.

Logue, 30, who appeared in adult films as "Sunny Dae," entered the plea as part of an agreement with prosecutors. Most of Abrahamsen's relatives declined to comment after the hearing, but Rella expressed her displeasure.

"I'm not happy," she said, adding that Abrahamsen "didn't deserve to die."

Logue's plea came after Andrews, also a pornographic actor, 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 in quavering tones with "yes, sir" and "no, sir" when he asked her questions, such as whether she had made her plea voluntarily.

Multiple members of Abra­hamsen's family attended the hearing, but Rella was the only who spoke. Only an evil person would have "planned and schemed" to kill her cousin, she said.

She said she was surprised to learn that Logue, who was once married and attended church, has children.

"He had a family," Rella said of Abrahamsen. "You have taken him away from us all."

Detectives say Logue was hired as a prostitute for the sex party at Abrahamsen's home. 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 on 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 had been slated to go to trial this week. She will get credit for time served since her arrest.
