Evoire Collier 21 and Dorian Taylor 24

Police say Evoire Collier, 21, and Dorian Taylor, 24, of North Carolina, met the victim at a restaurant in Miami Beach last week and one of them gave her a pill he believed to be the powerful painkiller Percocet. The woman was found half-dressed and dead inside her room back on Thursday.

The men, Evoire Collier, 21, and Dorian Taylor, 24, are also accused of stealing the credit cards of the victim, identified as 24-year-old Christine Englehardt, who was visiting from Pennsylvania. The Miami-Dade Medical Examiner's Office is conducting further examinations, and the cause of death has yet to be confirmed.

Houses have been swept away and thousands ordered to move amid relentless rain that has lashed the NSW coast for days. That caused officials to warn the downstream Hawkesbury River was expected to peak at levels not seen since 1961.

If Englehardt's cause of death stems from the drug they supplied her, Collier and Taylor could potentially be charged with manslaughter or murder in addition to the charges of burglary with battery, sexual battery, petty theft and fraudulent use of a credit card. Collier was apprehended on Ocean Drive, wearing the same trousers as seen in the hotel security recording. Judge Glazer added, "He couldn't even pick up the phone to call police or 911 after they did whatever it is they did to her". At the time of writing, authorities are trying to figure out if the woman overdosed on a pill given to her by the suspects.

Collier reportedly said the woman was staggering so much that he and Taylor had to help her to her room, where they had sex with her, and she lost consciousness. The police report states that Englehardt couldn't have consented to have sex with the men, as she was under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Police allege the men, who were arrested Sunday, raped her while she was drugged, left her for dead and then piled up charges on her credit card. Both are being held without bond at a Miami-Dade jail. When Taylor was arrested, police found the woman's phone and green pills.
