Football Player and the Millionaire: Deadly Love Triangle
Arrest and Filing
Murphy decided he had enough to file charges, and a judge issued warrants for the arrests of Johnston and Naposki.
Johnston was married and living the life of a soccer mom in Ladera Ranch. She baked cookies, attended PTA meetings, and held home Bible studies. With her husband and new baby, it was a life far away from the sensationalism of her affair with McLaughlin.
Byington wanted the satisfaction of arresting her personally and knocked on her door. Johnston answered.
"I said, 'Hey, Nanette, remember me?' She said, 'No I don't,' in a really snooty way. Then she said, 'My baby is upstairs do we have to talk now?' I said, 'Actually, we do. You understand you are under arrest for murder?' Byington said.
"For what? What murder?" Johnston asked.
"This time, the McLaughlin murder. I don't know about the other ones," Byington quipped.
"Hey, he was worth more alive than dead to me, why would I want to kill him?" she responded.
He entered the home with a search warrant, but didn't find much of interest other than a series of credit card statements with overdue balances of hundreds of thousands of dollars; a stripper pole and a wardrobe that might make Hollywood's most glamorous stars jealous.
