A preacher-turned-reality TV star faces charges of torturing and killing an ex-porn actress in the couple's shared Los Angeles-area apartment.

Brian Lee Randone is accused of beating and suffocating 31-year-old Felicia Lee, who had a role in the movie "Rush Hour 2" as well as several adult films.

Randone, 45, was charged last week with his girlfriend's murder and remained jailed Friday on $2 million bail.

Lee, whose stage name was "Felicia Tang," was found dead in the couple's Monrovia, Calif., apartment on Sept. 11 after Randone called 911 to say that his girlfriend was unconscious.

Prosecutors say Randone — who appeared on FOX's "America's Sexiest Bachelor" nine years ago — killed Lee. No motive has been released, but Lee's cause of death was suffocation, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The Monrovia, Calif., native had roles in "The Fast and the Furious" as well as in porn movies including "Asian Fever" and "Hotel Decadance," The Pasadena Star reported.

Lee also appeared on Playboy TV and various adult shows on cable. Her porn career seems to have ended in 2008, when she took down her Web site, the Star said.

The actress was born in Singapore and moved to Australia for school, her biography on her site said. She later came to Southern California with her family.

Randone graduated from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and has a Master's of Divinity degree from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune said.

According to Randone's Web site, he also traveled the world as a Christian mime, The Los Angeles Times reported.

He will be arraigned Sept. 29 and faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted.
