FORT PIERCE — Dorene Domato was the kind of person who liked to stay in close touch with her friends. She regularly talked to her brother and sister-in-law in Tallahassee by phone, had long talks with a potential new boyfriend in Stuart and stayed close to a former co-worker from Burdines. When she stopped answering their calls on Aug. 29, 2003, they became concerned; by the next day, they were frightened for her life.
"She was attacked in her house. She was beaten. She was strangled with the leash she used to walk her dog," said Assistant State Attorney Lynn Park in her opening statement. Park said Sule snuck into Domato's carport and into her attic, which led to the bedroom, where he waited until she got home.
Sule allegedly set her body on fire with gasoline to cover up the crime, Park said.
