PASADENA, Calif. — The man accused of killing porn star Felicia Tang is facing nine jurors in Pasadena who will determine his fate.

With a panel picked, jurors today were ordered to come back Nov. 30 when the case is continued after Thanksgiving.

Brian Randone is accused of torturing, suffocating and murdering 31-year-old Tang, his live-in girlfriend at the time, inside the couple’s Monrovia apartment on Sept. 11, 2009.

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

Tang, who was featured as cover girl for numerous calendars, 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 also owned FeliciaTang.com, which offered photo galleries and videos, as well as her online diary and custom shoots. But that site has been defunct for about a year.

Randone has been held for more than a year in lieu of $2 million bail at the Twin Towers jail in downtown Los Angeles.

At his arraignment last year, prosecutors Tang had been beaten with a "coat hanger-like object," then suffocated by having her head held into a pillow or ground into the floor.

Phillip Wojdak, a Los Angeles County deputy district attorney, said that there were "innumerable injuries to Ms. Tang's body" caused by an unknown weapon. Bruising on Tang's body led investigators to believe she was suffocated against a hard surface, without a weapon.

The judge at the time sealed the photos of Tang's injuries at the arraignment, remarking that "the photos, needless to say, are gruesome."

Randone, an Omaha, Neb., native, is a former minister and mime who was featured on a 2000 Fox reality show "The Sexiest Bachelor in America."

He has lived in the Los Angeles area for most of the decade in Sherman Oaks, Calif., and Burbank, Calif., as well as Monrovia, Calif., where Tang and Randone lived.
