A Florida woman has been ordered to stand trial in October after allegedly killing her boyfriend by zipping him into a suitcase.

Jorge Torres, Jr., 42, was killed in February 2020 in Winter County, Fla., leading to the arrest of his girlfriend Sarah Boone, who was charged with second-degree murder, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said at the time.

Torres “died after Boone zipped him into a suitcase and didn’t return for hours,” the sheriff’s office alleged. Boone's trial date has been set for Oct. 7, WESH, FOX 35 Orlando and the Orlando Sentinel reported on Friday.

Investigators reviewed videos on Boone’s phone that they say shows Torres trying to free himself from the suitcase while Boone laughs behind the camera, accuses him of cheating and taunts him, according to footage obtained by FOX 35 Orlando. The video shows a medium-sized blue suitcase on the ground, moving from the inside.

The woman recording the video and heard speaking was identified as Boone in the arrest affidavit, which was cited by FOX 35 Orlando, WESH and the Orlando Sentinel

“For everything you’ve done to me. [Expletive] you. Stupid,” Boone allegedly says from behind the camera, while a voice coming from inside of the suitcase continuosly calls her name. According to the affidavit, the man inside the suitcase, identified by authorities as Torres, is heard pleading with Boone to be released, calling her name calmly and saying he can’t breathe.

“Yeah, that’s what you do when you choke me," Boone says.

"Sarah, Sarah," he says, while Boone laughs. "Sarah, I can't breathe, babe."

“That’s on you,” she allegedly responds in the video.

“That’s what I feel like when you cheat on me," she allegedly says later in the video, while Torres keeps calling her name.

"Please Sarah," Torres says.

"Shhh!" Boone appears to respond.

In another clip, the suitcase is seen a few feet away from where it was in the previous scene. Torres is heard pleading with her and calmly calling her name as his voice grows more desperate with each call.

During the investigation, Boone allegedly told authorities that Torres died as a result of a hide-and-seek game gone wrong, per WESH, the Orlando Sentinel and FOX 35 Orlando.

She claimed she fell asleep when Torres was inside the suitcase and woke up to find him dead, according to investigators, FOX 35 Orlando and WESH reported.
