Jose Antonio Ibarra accused of ‘seriously disfiguring her body’

New affidavits have revealed thatJose Antonio Ibarra, who has been accused of killing Riley, beat her so horrifically with an object that her skull was disfigured. What object he used was not specified. He likely did not know Riley, and abducted and killed her when she went for a run on the University of Georgia campus.

New charging documents have alleged that Ibarra caused “great bodily harm with an object.” Affidavits shared by Fox News says he was charged with aggravated battery for “seriously disfiguring her body … by disfiguring her skull.” He is also charged with preventing the 22-year-old “from making or completing a 911 call” with “intent to harm.” He dragged her body to a secluded area.

Ibarra, 26, an illegal immigrant, has been charged with malice and felony murder, aggravated battery, kidnapping, concealing the death of another and other charges. Police said the incident was a “crime of opportunity.” According to Clark, Ibarra does not have an “extensive” criminal history.
