(CNN)Nathaniel David Rowland, the accused killer of a University of South Carolina student, didn’t show up in court Sunday, but that didn’t stop the victim’s mother from ripping into him in a statement to the judge.
“It sickens us to think that his face was the last thing that my baby girl saw on this earth. Does he even know her name?” Marci Josephson said in court, according to CNN affiliate WIS-TV.
Her daughter, Samantha Josephson, 21, was found dead in a field Friday afternoon about 14 hours after getting into a vehicle she mistakenly thought was her Uber, said police in Columbia, South Carolina. After Rowland’s arrest, police found Josephson’s blood and her cellphone in his vehicle, police said.
