Joseph Bryan Capstraw, 20, of Jacksonville, Fla., is in custody in Elizabethtown in connection with Robinson’s death. He has been charged with murder.

Capstraw "blacked out" after an argument with the victim in Elizabethtown, according to The Associated Press. The next thing he recalled, the woman was "badly beaten" and his hands were injured, police said.

“We are still investigating the circumstances that led to the homicide,” Thomas said.
