Austin Collom was in the pool having a drink when his fiancé came home from work last Tuesday afternoon. She joined him for a bit, then went inside to make dinner. While preparing dinner, he began an argument over the pool’s filter, and to avoid further she left the kitchen to go shower.

He then grabbed her by the hair and shoved her down onto the floor. She was strangled during the assault. He then retrieved a box with a knife inside and began to hit her in the back with the knife. After the assault, he insisted she gather her belongings and leaves, which she did. She sustained bruising on her chest and left elbow, and scratches and on the neck consistent with strangulation, according to investigators.
