Prosecutors say in the criminal complaint that Afolayan was shirtless and holding a blood-covered undershirt when police arrived at the apartment complex. He told police “Jesus forgives me” but otherwise was not communicative and investigators were unable to interview him.

Afolayan has been charged with first-degree murder. Prosecutors did not outline a motive in their charging documents.

The Journal Sentinel reports that Afolayan lived in an apartment with Lynch.
