"I hope you rot in hell," yelled the victim's sister, Celeste Flores Narvaez, before bailiffs escorted her out of the courtroom.

Jason "Blu" Griffith, 32, was charged with murder, battery-domestic violence with strangulation, and destruction of evidence in connection with the dancer's death.

Police say Griffith strangled his former girlfriend, cut off her legs and covered her body with concrete, reports CBS affiliate KLAS.

Debora was reported missing Dec.14 by her roommate who became worried when she failed to show up for a performance of "Fantasy," the nightly burlesque show at the Luxor hotel and casino where she worked. Police say she was killed Dec.12.

Griffith's roommate, Louis Colombo, who reportedly helped Griffith cover-up the murder, asked police for immunity in exchange for information about Debora's murder, according to KLAS. He has not been arrested.

"In my book, they're both killers," said the victim's sister. "They're both murderers. They both should be held accountable."

Defense attorney John Momot, who isn't connected to this case, said even if police agreed to a deal the district attorney doesn't have to honor the agreement and can still file charges against Colombo.

Griffith, a performer in the Cirque du Soleil "Love" show at The Mirage resort-casino, is being held without bail and is due in court again for his preliminary hearing February 15.
