The Medical Examiner ruled the death was a homicide caused by multiple stab wounds. The victim's vehicle was reported missing.

It had a large amount of what appeared to be blood inside. Cell phone records showed the last four calls on her cell phone were from a phone number that belonged to the defendant. Cell tower mapping of the phone showed it near the vicitm's apartment on March 13 and March 14. Analysis of DNA from a bloody handprint inside the apartment where the victim was found deceased showed DNA from the victim as well as the defendant.

Prosecutors requested a bond of $150,000 cash.
