He remained jailed Wednesday on $2 million bail and could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted of beating and choking Felicia Lee on Sept. 11, 2009 in their Monrovia, Calif., apartment, as prosecutors claim.

The 31-year-old Lee appeared in several adult movies and on Playboy's TV channel under the name Felicia Tang.

She also appeared with reality star Tila Tequila in an online video in which both women were nude and gyrating in a pool.

Lee's biggest star turn as a mainstream actress came in "Rush Hour 2" with Jackie Chan. She also performed in "The Fast and the Furious." Friends say she had left the adult world behind her and her adult website had been shut down.

The Singapore-born woman had moved in with Randone a few months before her death. Detectives said her body had dozens of recent injuries and she was tortured before she died.
