Florida Woman to Defend Herself after Switching 8 Lawyers; Kept Her Boyfriend in a Suitcase after Drunk Game

A Florida woman is facing the challenge of representing herself at her murder trial after going through eight public defenders, as ruled by a judge last week. The woman is accused of killing her boyfriend by trapping him in a suitcase during a game of hide-and-seek.

Sarah Boone has had difficulties establishing a positive rapport with any court-appointed lawyer since her arrest in 2020 for the alleged murder of her partner, Jorge Torrez Jr.

“It is Judge Michael Kraynick’s opinion that the Defendant should represent herself, as no attorney can meet her needs,” according to court papers obtained by Fox 35.

During a status conference last month, Boone expressed her dissatisfaction with her latest legal representative, stating that she felt the lawyer had been dishonest and displayed an unpleasant demeanor.

According to Fox 35, several lawyers who attempted to help her have all decided to withdraw due to different reasons, such as irreconcilable differences.

In a lengthy 58-page document addressed to the judge, Boone expressed over 30 concerns regarding the evidence and witnesses, as reported by the station.

In February 2020, Boone, who was 42 at the time, was apprehended by the police. This came after investigators discovered footage on Boone’s cell phone, which appeared to show her mocking Torrez while he was trapped inside a suitcase.

During the incident, Torrez exclaimed that he was unable to breathe while she reportedly taunted him as per The Post.

According to reports, Boone told the police that she unintentionally left her boyfriend in the suitcase and fell asleep for several hours. It was only when she woke up that she realized Torrez was still trapped inside.

Police discovered a minor cut on Torrez’s lip and bruising around his eye when they rescued him from the cargo.

She is currently facing charges of second-degree murder.
