She was choked to death, her legs were chopped off, and then her naked body was encased in concrete.
Those are the gruesome details, as outlined in an arrest report, of how a 32-year-old man allegedly killed a Las Vegas burlesque dancer.
Jason Griffith, 32, told police he killed his former girlfriend, Deborah Flores-Narváez, 31, in the heat of the moment after an argument at his home Dec. 12. He was arrested Friday after police found her body in a downtown Las Vegas home.
Griffith was due in court Wednesday to face a murder charge. His lawyer, Patrick McDonald, didn't immediately respond Monday to a message.
Griffith told police she attacked him and forced him to do what he did, but refused to provide an official statement without his lawyer present.
Flores-Narváez was reported missing Dec. 14 after she didn't show up for a rehearsal at the burlesque show "Fantasy" at the Luxor hotel-casino, where she had worked for a year. Her roommate and co-worker told police Flores-Narváez never missed rehearsals or performances without giving notice.
