The Puerto Rican boxer accused within the horrific slaying of his pregnant lover was indicted by a federal grand jury for the killing this week — and should now face the dying penalty.
Félix Verdejo is accused finishing up the brutal and calculated murder of 27-year-old Keishla Rodríguez, in response to a grievance filed by the FBI within the US territory.
Within the sadistic slaying, Verdejo allegedly punched Rodriguez within the face, injected her with an unknown liquid and tied her toes and arms to a block final week, in response to the feds.
The previous Olympic boxer then allegedly tossed her off a bridge and fired photographs from a gun into the water the place she was submerged.
Verdejo turned himself in to police final Sunday and is being held with out bail. He was hit with a bunch of fees, together with kidnapping and carjacking leading to dying and with deliberately killing an unborn youngster.
The boxer, who’s married and has a younger daughter, might face the dying penalty if convicted.
“What I would like is justice for Keishla,” the sufferer’s mom, Keila Ortiz, mentioned at a press convention Thursday, in response to the Related Press. “We’re going by means of a ache that Tony and I by no means imagined.”
Her father added that regardless of the brutal nature of the crime, he doesn’t assist in search of the dying penalty.
“That doesn’t remedy something for me. What’s performed is finished,” he mentioned this week, in response to the AP. “Let him bear in mind on daily basis who my daughter was.”
