Nicole Okrzesik and James Ayers have been arrested in the March murder of 19-year-old Juliana Mensch.


We've already brought you the creepy text messages between Okrzesik and Ayers after the crime and the homicidal Google searches Okrzesik allegedly made, but there's more: In addition to text-message arguments about what to do with Mensch's body, Okrzesik and Ayers appear to have used Facebook chat to plot their next moves too.

The first bits of Facebook info about the alleged crime come from around 8 p.m. on March 23 -- around seven hours before the murder, according to police. Okrzesik posts a picture from an IHOP and tags Mensch:

She then posted four photos just before midnight, including the one featured at the top of this post. Police say the photos were taken on NW Seventh Terrace, at the house where Mensch's body was found.

Police say the murder happened sometime early the morning of March 24. That afternoon, Okrzesik posted that she was in Miami:

And by 5:30, she was partying in South Beach:

She also posted pictures of her and Ayers at the bar:

On March 25, Okrzesik and Ayers got in an argument via text message about what to do with Mensch's body and whether to turn themselves in. The argument ended in the early hours of March 26, with Ayers asking Okrzesik to come over and getting repeatedly brushed off.

The argument started up again later March 26, on Facebook:

Ayers: if you don't show up I'm telling your dad and the police everything

Okrzesik: I'm waiting for money

6 p.m.
Ayers: I'm not going down by myself If you wont help me, your going with me

7:23 p.m.

Okrzesik: What did you say?

  We have to figure this out, Im not going to but if the smell gets worse were fucked

Okrzesik: Cant we just go dump it somewhere then take off

Ayers: Please just get here already, I need you, were in this together

Okrzesik didn't show up -- later March 27, she checked into a drug rehab facility.

The next day, Ayers was arrested after police say he told several people the details of the crime and said he was going to kill himself.

Ayers has been charged with first-degree murder (his trial starts June 25), and Okrzesik's case will be presented to a grand jury June 7, according to the Broward State Attorney's Office.
