Investigators say Angel met with a woman who performed dances and massage services in a motel room, according to WKRC. The woman told police when she didn’t agree to sexual acts, Angel got mad and beat her until she lost consciousness.

When she woke up, she was missing money and two cell phones.

DNA was taken at the time, but there was no match, according to the report. Two months ago, however, a match was found between the DNA and Angel.
