Man Accused of Brutal Attack in Del Cerro Pleads Guilty

A man accused of brutally attacking two women and killing one of them in a Del Cerro home last year changed his plea to guilty Friday.

Eduardo Torres plead guilty to one count of murder during forced oral copulation, murder during a first-degree burglary and one count of forced oral copulation, with all charged allegations including torture and use of a weapon.

According to San Diego police, Torres attempted to break into a home on Mill Peak Road near College Avenue in June 2016 but was chased away by residents. He then smashed a glass door and broke into another home nearby.

Torres fatally stabbed a 74-year-old woman and raped a 50-year-old woman inside that home.

When officers entered the locked bedroom where Torres was holding one of the woman hostage, he surrendered.

Torres had pleaded not guilty to the charges last year.

NBC 7’s Matt Rascon has the details on the arraignment of Eduardo Torres, the man accused of breaking into a Del Cerro killing one and sexually assaulting another.

He will be sentenced to life without parole on August 4.
