This is where Summers and Jeffries lived together for the past two years.

Police searched the apartment unit where the blood trail ended and found signs of struggle and blood throughout the living space.

This included broken glass, broken mirror, and blood in the bedroom.

Police said that there were several pieces of clothing with blood stains in a washing machine.

Summers has been charged with second-degree murder, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.
