Surveillance Video Shows Barry University Student With Alleged Killer Before Her Death

Newly obtained surveillance video shows what police say helped them arrest a suspect in the February murder of a Barry University student.

NBC 6 exclusively obtained the video months after 18-year-old Jamie Luis Plasencia was arrested and charged in the murder of 19-year-old Priscilla Torres in Little Havana.

The video shows Torres walking out of her dorm with a man, who was later identified as Plasencia.

Torres was believed to be missing until detectives identified her as the woman who was shot and killed days before in Little Havana. Witnesses reported hearing screams and gunshots.

Days later, police found Torres' missing 2017 Nissan Sentra, which was reported stolen, fully engulfed in flames.

Tips from Torres' friends, cellphone records and the surveillance video led to Plasencia's arrest. He is facing a first-degree murder charge.

Plasencia entered a not guilty plea and is expected to face trial in early 2019.
