Former MMA fighter Dwayne Herelle Jr. has been charged with murder. He allegedly stabbed Irene Torres, his ex-girlfriend, over 17 times and stuffed her body inside a closet.

According to investigators, the pair had gotten into a bitter argument earlier in the day and Herrel waited outside her parents’ home in Tennessee on Jan. 29. for Torres to return home from work.

After stabbing her more than a dozen times, Herrel allegedly stuffed Torres’ lifeless body into the trunk of his car and drove to his apartment in Bellevue, where he forced her body into a storage bin before hiding it in his closet.

Herelle Jr. then dumped Torres’ blood-soaked clothes and purse in a nearby dumpster, detectives said.

Torres’ father confronted his Herrelle Jr., who initially told him that she was at a hotel before allegedly confessing to the murder and where her body could be found. Torres had broken up with Herelle a month before she was killed, according to her sister.
