During the incident, Urias’s sister also sustained life-threatening injuries after she and her brother tried to stop Urias during the situation. Urias’s siblings were visiting him and Tornabene from Baton Rouge, the New York Post reported.
After allegedly killing his girlfriend’s sister, Urias was seen leaving the garage with parts of the victim’s innards around his neck by the homeowner.
“I looked him in the eyes,” the homeowner said. “He looked like the devil.”
“This is probably the top, worst that I’ve seen in my 32 years of law enforcement,” St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff Mike Tregre said, according to the New York Post.
