ORLANDO, Fla. – Two suspects in a sex trafficking ring that led to the death of a 14-year-old girl were arrested in Georgia on Monday.
Orlando Police say 20-year-old Karla Michelle Quiros Alsina and 26-year-old Arthur Lee Coleman III were taken into custody in the Atlanta area.
The two suspects, along with 19-year-old Avorice Jeno Holman, and 22-year-old Jose Ignacia Santiago Sotomayor face multiple charges, including first-degree murder, human trafficking of a child, prostitution, racketeering and transmission of child pornography.
Police say the four adults operated an Orlando, Fla. sex trafficking ring. According to police, Santiago-Sotomayor met a 14-year-old girl and her 15-year-old sister through a friend and convinced them to try the sex trade. He then allegedly turned them over to Coleman -- who police called the primary trafficker -- Quiros Alsina and Holman.
For eight days, the two girls were forced to perform sex acts while under a mix of prescription and over-the-counter medicine.
Authorities said they uncovered the ring when Quiros Alsina brought the 14-year-old girl to Orlando Regional Medical Center on Aug. 14, where the teen later died of a drug overdose. Her older sister was rescued.
Jeno-Holman and Santiago-Sotomayor are already in the Orange County jail.
More arrests could be forthcoming, police said.
