LOS ANGELES — Brian Lee Randone has been locked up for about a week at the Twin Towers jail in downtown Los Angeles after his arrest.

Randone was charged Tuesday by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office in the death of porn star Felicia Tang, whose body was found in a Monrovia, Calif., apartment last Friday.

Police believe the homicide was the result of domestic violence and that Randone suffocated Tang, the 31-year-old live-in girlfriend.

Randone called 911 to the apartment in Monrovia Friday night to say that his girlfriend was unconscious.

Tang, whose birth name was Felicia Lee, was born in Singapore, raised in Australia, and became an online-adult top draw for seven years, from 2001 to 2008.

She starred in several Playboy TV shows, “Naked Sports,” “7 Lives Exposed” and “Buckwild,” among others.

Tang appeared in several Peach DVD movies, including “Asian Fever” and “Hotel Decadence,” and she starred in the pay-per-view series “Strip Poker Tournament.”

She also had leading parts in several mainstream movies, including “Rush Hour 2,” “Cradle 2 the Grave” and “The Fast and the Furious” and modeled for Sketcher Shoes.

She was featured as cover girl for numerous calendars.

Tang also owned FeliciaTang.com, which offered photo galleries and videos, as well as her online diary and custom shoots. That site has been defunct for about a year.

Jane Robison, with the District Attorney’s office, told XBIZ Friday she could not comment beyond what has already been reported about the murder, which pointed to torture and mutilation.

Randone is being held in lieu of $2 million bail, with a preliminary hearing scheduled for Sept. 29, Robison said.

Randone, 45, grew up in Omaha, Neb., and holds a bachelor's degree from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and a master's of divinity degree from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth.

He ministered at Moody Bible Institute, Dallas Theological Seminary and Taylor University Chapel. Randone also had mime skills and regularly spoke at retreats, youth rallies and other church and school functions.

In 2000, Randone moved west to California to seek a career in show business, later appearing on the Fox reality show "The Sexiest Bachelor in America."

Randone, in a blog posting on his personal website, wrote that he had no plans to “try to be sexy” for the show, but he would “try to be a Christian first, a man second.”
