NEW YORK (CBS) According to Miami-Dade Police, up-and-coming Florida disc-jockey Juan Carlos Portieles, aka DJ Seasunz, drove around Miami with the body of his dead 18-year-old girlfriend, Jaclyn Elisse Torrealba, in the front passenger seat of his car while he proceeded to visit "several" people and tell each of them about the fight that led to her murder.
That's according to an Oct. 12 arrest affidavit, which says Portieles choked his girlfriend to death after he beat and bit her during a late-night altercation. He has been charged with second-degree murder.
The altercation, which took place at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 11, began as a verbal dispute but escalated, say police.
"The defendant began to beat and bite the victim repeatedly and she fought back. The defendant choked the victim until she stopped moving," according to the report.
Authorities reported that Portieles, who is 5'10" and 210 pounds, sustained injuries to the face and torso. He was treated at Ward D, the jail floor of Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.
Twelve hours after the incident, Portieles drove to the Miami-Dade Police Department's Midwest Station, where he told the desk officer what he had done, and was arrested without incident, according to the report. Police confirmed that a body was in his vehicle, which he had driven to the station.
According to Portieles' statement, he and Torrealba, a freshman at Florida International University, had been "romantically involved for two years."
Earlier Monday, Torrealba's father issued a heart-wrenching statement on Facebook in which he said," our beloved Jaclyn was abruptly and much too prematurely taken away from us, the victim ... of an incomprehensible act of violence... My sweet little princess, so much joy you gave me with every smile, so much happiness with every hug, so much love with every gaze...you will forever be with us."
