This came after police found Englehardt's body in a South Beach hotel room on Thursday. 21-year-old Evoire Collier and 24-year-old Dorian Taylor were arrested Sunday after using 24-year-old Christine Englehardt's credit cards at a Miami Beach liquor store.

Once at the woman's hotel room, the men had to hold up Englehardt, as Miami Beach Detective Luis Alsina testified in court on Monday (March 22), stating, "The defendant was holding her from behind, holding her by the neck so she could stand".

A Miami detective noted that Englehardt was "staggering and appeared to be in no condition to give any kind of consent" prior to entering the hotel, the outlet reports.

If the medical examiner's office confirms the drug was a factor in the woman's death, the suspects may face murder or manslaughter charges.

"This is about her life and how the family deserves to be helped out for raising such an incredible human being only to have her taken from us way too soon".

It is not clear if she took the drug willingly or if she was spiked.

At Monday's hearing, they were denied bond by Glazer, who noted the Greensboro, North Carolina-based suspects "couldn't even pick up the phone to call police or 911 after they did whatever it is they did to her". Once she was unconscious, Taylor and Collier stole her cash and credit cards, which they used at various locations around Miami. Collier believed the pill was a painkiller, possibly Percocet.

Officers picked up Collier Saturday on Ocean Drive at Eighth Street where he was wearing the same trousers in the footage, police said. Englehardt's cause of death has not been determined.

Circuit Judge Mindy Glazer said one of the accused men admitted to giving the woman a green pill with "a30" on it, NBC News reported.

Mayor Dan Gelber told an emergency meeting of the city commission last week that all manner of out-of-town and out-of-state visitors, not just college students, were filling the streets since Governor Ron DeSantis on February 26 called the state an "oasis of freedom" from coronavirus restrictions. More than 1,000 people were arrested during this year's spring break season, and more than 80 guns were seized.
