Cleotha Abston, the man who kidnapped and killed billionaire heiress Eliza Fletcher, was charged with first-degree murder earlier this month and could face the death penalty.

Abston was charged of first-degree murder, premeditated murder and murder in perpetration of kidnapping, Fox News reported.

According to the autopsy, Eliza Fletcher died from a single gunshot wound to the back of the head and blunt force trauma to the head.

WREG reported:

Eliza Fletcher died due to a gunshot wound to the back of the head and blunt force injury to the head, according to an autopsy report obtained Thursday.

Her manner of death was judged as a homicide by a forensic pathologist with the West Tennessee Regional Forensic Center. The report was dated Sept. 27.

Eliza Fletcher, the granddaughter of Joseph Orgill III, who inherited and ran a hardware company that now claims over $3 billion in annual sales, was abducted on September 2.

Fletcher was jogging near University of Memphis at 4:30 am when she was abducted.

Eliza Fletcher’s body was found near the suspect’s brother’s home days later.

Abston has a long rap sheet and previously served prison time.

Cleotha Abston was accused of rape as a pre-teen and previously served 20 years in prison for kidnapping a prosecutor at gunpoint in 2000, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported.

Tennessee prosecutors said they won’t rule out the death penalty if Abston is convicted.
