Ex- player facing torture charges
A FORMER professional football player has been charged over the alleged three- week torture of a Brisbane woman.
Former Brisbane Strikers and Brisbane City midfielder Jeromy Lee Harris, 41, ( pictured) was yesterday charged with a string of offences relating to the ordeal that left 21- year- old Tanya Nicole Roberts in an induced coma.
She remains in Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital with life- threatening burns to her body. On Wednesday, Ms Roberts’ former boyfriend Nicholas John Crilley, 31, was also charged with torture offences over the same incident. Police allege Crilley burnt the woman from head- to- toe and bashed her.
According to court documents, Harris resides in the house where Ms Roberts’ battered body was found on July 2.
