Around 3 a.m., Flemings texted a friend asking for an Uber to pick him up outside his apartment on the 11100 block in South Vernon because he had a fight with his roommate and could no longer stay there. It has been.

An Uber driver picked him up around 5:30 a.m. and drove him to several motels outside Lansing until he found an available room. McCord said the Uber driver showed his driver’s license to secure his room. Flemings then paid for the lodging in cash.

Police found the woman’s body hidden under a pile of clothing between the bed and the wall after she didn’t show up for work and a colleague called police to check, McCord said. Some items had bleach poured on them.

Location data from the missing woman’s phone showed it tracked Fleming’s movements after the murder, and the last ping was from near a motel in Lansing, McCord said.

The woman suffered 45 stab wounds, mostly to her back, and was beaten with a blunt object, which the coroner said may have been a hammer.

Investigators found a bloody hammer and serrated cleaver in an alleyway near the apartment, as well as clothing police allegedly linked to Flemings.

Flemings admitted to stabbing the woman, but told detectives he acted in self-defense.

Flemings is charged with first-degree murder, murder in action for another felony, robbery, and concealment of murder. Judge William Fay ordered him to be held without bail.
