Nazario is accused of killing his girlfriend, Korean Bowden, and then tying up two of their children and kidnapping a third.
Police warrants paint a gruesome four-day ordeal for the woman and children.
According to the warrants, Bowden’s 12-year-old daughter told officers the next day, Nazario let her out and said, You can take this like a woman, or I’ll kill you. They said she was then beaten after an unsuccessful rape attempt.
Two days later, the family’s pastor, Jean Ward, was checking on the couple at the home on Lexington Court when he found the bruised 12-year-old. After he called 911, officers found a 4-year-old tied up in a bathtub. Police said her clothes were soaked in urine.
Officers said Bowden died from multiple stab wounds. Nazario later admitted to stabbing her seven or eight times after an argument and physical altercation on Friday, police said. They also said she was missing both ears.
Police said they found the murder weapon in a trash bag on the back porch, but Bowden’s 9-year-old daughter was missing. Officers found the girl with Nazario in Bartow County on Monday. Nazario faces charges of murder, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and aggravated sodomy.
The Division of Family and Children Services has taken the children. A bank account has been set up at Wells Fargo to help the family.
