The mother of a missing Miramar woman and best friend were among those summoned to testify for a grand jury Thursday, which is determining if there is enough evidence to charge the woman's estranged husband with her murder.
Vilet Torrez's husband, 39-year-old Cid Torrez was arrested Nov. 21 and charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife, who went missing in late March. He is being held without bond. Her body has not been found.
Prosecutor Brian Cavanagh brought in detectives, crime scene technicians and a slew of people to build his case against Cid Torrez.
Ronaldo Blanco, Vilet Torrez' father, was on hand for support Thursday. He said he feels more at ease now and hopes they will soon find out what really happened and where his daughter is.
After Cid Torrez was arrested, the couple's three children were placed with Vilet Torrez's mother.
"I want him to repent. There is divine justice. Also, I have his kids, I don't want him to worry because he knows there are being taken care of well. When they can, they will see him. I am not going to prohibit it. When he can they will see him," Gladys Blanco said.
Police have not revealed exactly what evidence they have against him, only saying it is still an ongoing investigation.
