A 21-year-old man in Southern California allegedly tortured his girlfriend before killing her on Christmas Eve, according to authorities.
Saul Nava is being held in the Ventura County jail on $2 million bail under suspicion that he committed murder, mayhem, and torture, according to local Fox 11 Los Angeles.
In California, “mayhem” is a felony charge that alleges a suspect “unlawfully and maliciously” disfigured or disabled a victim’s body.
The man tortured his girlfriend.
Investigators found evidence that the victim had been tortured prior to her death, the sheriff’s office said without providing additional details.
Detectives executed a search warrant at Nava’s residence and seized evidence related to the crimes, the department added.
“This was an incident of domestic violence, and there is no outstanding threat to the community,” the sheriff’s department wrote in a statement.
