Morano is charged with killing Sara Martinez, 20, who was last seen on March 9, 2009, at Club Guadalajara on Old Hickory Boulevard in south Nashville.
She was reported missing 6 days later and the car Morano was known to drive was discovered abandoned, covered in her blood, on March 24, 2009 on Allied Drive, not far from the Nashville Zoo.
Morano was the last person known to have seen Martinez, and he disappeared March 9 without returning for his belongings.
