A homeless man accused of killing a Davie woman after she refused to let him use her shower, faced his ex-girlfriend Tuesday, as she took the stand to testify against him, The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.
Oscar Camejo, is accused of killing Jill Dornbush, 62, and disposing her body. If convicted of first-degree murder, he could face life in prison, the report said.
When his ex-girlfriend, Delia Padron, took the stand, she spoke in Spanish and said the two of them had befriended Dornbush in 2010. She allowed them to store some of their belongings in her apartment but wouldn't let Camejo to shower on April 30, 2010, the report said.
Padron, who pleaded guilty last month to accessory to first-degree murder, testified without reaching a deal on how much prison time she will have to serve, the newspaper reported.
Padron said Camejo was enraged when the woman denied a shower, the report said.
"He grabbed her by the neck, and he was choking her from behind," Padron said in court, according to the newspaper.
She then said that he took a small knife and stabbed the woman repeatedly in the neck, the report said.
"I said to him, "No! No! Don't do that!" But it was too late," the newspaper quoted her as saying.
Padron said the two cleaned up the scene together. They cleaned the blood and painted a door that had been sprayed with blood, the report said.
Padron then testified that the two of them wrapped the body in a quilt and drove it to a garbage bin, the report said. Another witness said the contents of the garbage were incinerated, the report said.
The body has never been found, according to the report.
