WINTER PARK, Fla. — A woman accused of killing her boyfriend by zipping him inside a suitcase is set to return to court this morning.
Orange County deputies said Sarah Boone and Jorge Torres were drunk when she put him in the bag during a game of hide-and-seek in their Winter Park apartment in February 2020.
Investigators said cellphone video shows Boone taunting Torres while he struggled to breathe.
“I can’t (expletive) breathe, seriously,” Torres is heard saying in the videos, according to deputies.
“That’s on you,” Boone replied, according to deputies. “That’s what it feels like when you cheat on me,” and “that’s what you do when you choke me,” and that he “should probably shut the (expletive) up.”
Deputies said Boone told them that the pair had been drinking and that she thought Torres would free himself.
Records show the couple had a history of domestic violence incidents.
Boone’s trial is set to begin May 16.
