MIAMI (AP) (WTAJ) — Two North Carolina men accused of raping a tourist who died of an overdose during a spring break trip to Miami Beach are now facing first-degree murder charges.

A grand jury in Miami-Dade County returned an indictment Wednesday finding Evoire Collier and Dorian Taylor responsible for the fentanyl-induced death of Christine Englehardt.

Prosecutors say the 24-year-old from Richboro, Pennsylvania, met the men in South Beach. Her body was found in the Albion Hotel.

The grand jury added a murder charge against Taylor for supplying the same opioid to 21-year-old Walter Riley of Chicago. He was found unconscious and died two days after Englehardt.
