Mollie Tibbetts, the missing woman who was found dead Tuesday in Iowa, died from "sharp force injuries", according to preliminary findings of her autopsy.
Rivera made his first court appearance in Poweshiek County District Court on Wednesday where a judge set a $5 million cash-only bond and scheduled a preliminary hearing for August 31.
Richards, an attorney for Cristhian Bahena Rivera, stated in a court document filed Wednesday that an employer has said Rivera is in the USA legally. During his first court appearance Wednesday afternoon, Rivera looked stoic and refused to speak when given the chance.
During a Tuesday news conference, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Assistant Director Mitch Mortvedt said the agency based its classification of Rivera as an illegal immigrant on information from the Department of Homeland Security.
He has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of the 20-year-old University of Iowa student who vanished while jogging on the evening of July 18. Authorities said Rivera was an undocumented immigrant.
