Chellvonder Rose, a homeless Skid Row prostitute, testified Thursday, March 14, that eight years ago, Jesse Perez Torres kidnapped her at knifepoint in Long Beach and drove her back to his apartment, where he bound her, beat her unconscious and raped her.

Chellvonder Rose said Torres hogtied her and placed duct tape over her mouth so tightly that it muffled her screams, locked her in a bedroom closet and held her captive for two days.

Rose testified in Superior Court in Riverside on the first day of the penalty phase in the trial of Torres, 42, who was convicted Wednesdayof kidnapping and murdering 17-year-old Norma Lopez of Moreno Valley as she walked alone to a friend’s house after a summer school class in July 2010.
