Evoire Collier and Dorian Taylor Age
Evoire Collier, 21, and Dorian Taylor, 24, are also accused of stealing the unconscious woman’s credit cards and using them while on vacation in South Beach, the Miami Herald reported.
The couple were caught with surveillance footage arriving at the Albion Hotel with the debilitated Pennsylvania resident at around 1 a.m. Thursday, police said.
“[Taylor] grabbed her from behind and held her by the neck so she could stand up,” said Luis Alsina, Detective Luis Alsina of Miami Beach, during a bail hearing Monday, the Herald said.
Police said each of the men had sex with the victim at the hotel and at one point Taylor allegedly forced himself on her because she appeared to be unconscious.
“The fact that the victim was under the influence of alcohol and drugs she could not have consented to sexual relations with the accused,” the police report said.
While their victim passed out, the men ripped off their credit cards, phones and cash and left them in the room “regardless of their well-being or safety,” the report said.
First responders discovered the “half-naked” and dead woman in the bedroom bed later on Thursday.
Cops were able to locate Collier – who matched the description of one of the men in surveillance videos – on Saturday in an area that was recently filled with spring breakers to celebrate.
He allegedly confessed that he and his friend met the woman at a local restaurant and that Taylor had given him a “green pill” according to police reports.
Collier told police he believed the drug was Percocet, a strong pain reliever, Alsina testified in court.
He reportedly said, “He left with [Taylor] because they were planning to have sex with the victim,” the report said.
The two men, originally from Greensboro, were jailed in a Miami Dade prison on Sunday.
The charges against them include battery intrusion, sexual battery, petty theft, and fraudulent use of a credit card.
Investigators are still trying to determine the victim’s cause of death and whether it is an overdose of the male-administered pill. In this case, the two could also be charged with manslaughter or murder, the Herald reported.
Their arrests come as local authorities grapple with a crowd of recalcitrant spring breakers who flocked to party town and even arrived at 8 p.m. recently. Curfew to suppress the loud festivities.
Miami Beach police have arrested more than 1,000 people since February and at least five police officers have been injured on the job, the Herald reported.
In court on Monday, prosecutor Ayana Harris argued that Collier and Taylor should be detained pending trial, noting that they could face more serious charges and pose a flight risk because “both are overseas”.
Miami-Dade Circuit judge Mindy Glazer agreed and expressed concern about the allegations.
“He couldn’t even pick up the phone to call the police or 911 after doing what they did to him,” Glazer said.
Collier and Taylor have both been appointed public defense lawyers and are expected to be tried in about three weeks.
