Around 10 p.m. on December 12, Memphis police responded to a suspicious call saying someone had found a body stuffed in a suitcase, according to WHBQ.

Officials said that when they opened the suitcase, they found that the victim had died due to a strong impact on the head.

Police in Tennessee identified the victim as Jeffries on December 20.

According to police, a witness told investigators he saw Summers drag that suitcase through an alleyway around 10 a.m. that day.

The witness said Summers tried to throw the suitcase in the trash, but it was too heavy.

When she found herself being followed, Summers dropped her suitcase and fled the location.

Video from a nearby apartment complex also shows Summers trying to throw the suitcase in the trash.

The camera spotted him again outside the bank.

Investigators said the suitcase left a trail of blood that prompted police to return from the dump to the Broadmoor Apartment complex in South Cleveland.

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

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

This includes broken glass, broken mirrors and blood in the bedroom.

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

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