Suspicions fell on the defendant as he was the only one who had a huge argument with the owner regarding his leave.

Apparently, the defendant had been fighting with the victim as he wanted to travel to his home country and the victim refused his request.

The victim furiously fired the defendant after several arguments between them, and the angry victim decided to take revenge.

The angry defendant headed back to garage and began to assault the victim; he used a hammer and a knife to repeatedly stab the victim in the head, neck, and stomach.
