    Jury selection underway in murder trial of man accused of killing estranged wife

    https://www.local10.com/news/crime/j...estranged-wife

    Jury selection resumed Wednesday in the trial of Cid Torrez, who is accused of killing his estranged wife in Broward County.

    Prosecutors have the difficult task of proving that Cid Torrez killed Vilet Torrez in March 2012, although her body was never found.

    Opening statements conclude in Cid Torrez murder trial

    Prosecutors painted Torrez as an estranged husband who was obsessed with his wife's every movement before he killed her.

    "He did not want anybody else to be with Vilet," Assistant State Attorney Lanie Bandell said.

    Although Vilet Torrez's body has never been found, prosecutors are relying on the evidence from the police dogs and testimony from friends and coworkers who portrayed Cid Torrez as a jealous soon-to-be ex-husband.

    Guilty verdict in Miramar missing body murder case

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/br...714-story.html

    Cid Torrez, the Miramar man accused of killing his wife and dumping her body in the Everglades in 2012, is guilty of second-degree murder, a Broward jury determined Friday.

    Torrez, 43, was also convicted of multiple offenses related to his planting of tracking software on the cell phone belonging to his wife, Vilet Torrez, in the months before she disappeared.

    The victim’s body was never found.

    Cid Torrez faces a maximum sentence of life in prison when he’s sentenced September 1.

    The sentencing of a Miramar man convicted in July of killing his estranged wife and dumping her body in the Everglades in 2012 was delayed Thursday after he stunned a courtroom by addressing cryptic comments to the President of the United States.

    The sentencing was rescheduled for October 23.
    The only one of his children who was in court, 18-year-old daughter Vilet Torrez, had earlier given a blistering statement of her own, saying her father was a liar who made her sick.

    “Guess what, Dad. Yeah, I get your letters,” she said. “You want to know why I don’t reply? Because I don’t want to talk to you… I’m agnostic, but I can tell you now, you are going to go to hell. Thanks for everything dad. You wanted a letter from me. I’m sorry, but this is as good as you’re gonna get.”

    'The witch hunt ends here,' Cid Torrez says after status hearing

    https://www.local10.com/news/crime/-...status-hearing

    Cid Torrez, who was convicted of killing his estranged wife, was vocal in court Monday at the end of his status hearing, making bizarre statements yet again as he addressed Local 10's cameras, saying, "the witch hunt ends here" before he was subdued by bailiffs.
    "We all can agree that Mr. Torrez did not say or do anything during the trial that I would view -- or the court or the state would have called into question his competency," Judge Lisa Porter said.

    A follow-up status hearing is scheduled for Friday.

    Convicted killer's sentencing remains on hold over mental health questions

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/br...302-story.html

    The family of Vilet Torrez, a woman who disappeared after last being seen on a surveillance video arriving at her Miramar apartment complex before dawn on March 31, 2012, was finally going to learn the fate of the man convicted of killing her.

    A sentencing hearing was underway on Oct. 5, 2017. But it was cut short when the defendant, the victim’s husband, Cid Torrez, opened his mouth.

    A final sentencing date has not been scheduled, but Blanco said the victim’s family is prepared to return to the Broward courtroom to watch her killer face justice.
