Deputies accuse girlfriend of disposing of man's body

Hillsborough deputies on Tuesday arrested a 32-year-old woman they say put her boyfriend's body in a garbage bag, wrapped it in duct tape and left it outside her apartment after an argument Sunday night.

A pizza deliveryman found the body of 37-year-old David Trainor in a shopping cart about 1 a.m. Monday along Bruce B. Downs Boulevard near 138th Avenue.

On Tuesday, deputies arrested Trainor's girlfriend, Katara Temika Paris, of 2918 Ramada Drive, Apt. 154.

Deputies did not charge Paris with Trainor's slaying on Tuesday, saying only that she had disposed of his body after the argument. She currently faces only a charge of tampering with evidence.

But investigators said that could change. They are awaiting a medical examiner's autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Paris remained in custody at the Hillsborough County Jail on Tuesday without bail.

Records show that Paris was arrested in January 2002 on a charge of giving a false name to a law enforcement officer.

The outcome of that case was not available late Tuesday.
