The suspect's bond has been set at $5 million.

Barquin was found dead at Coldwater Golf Links in Ames on the morning of September 17. Other golfers found a bag with clubs but no one was around to claim it, so they called the police. They found Barquin's body in the pond with several stab wounds to her upper torso, head and neck, according to the complaint filed Tuesday against Richards. Ames police said she had been "assaulted". Jobless and homeless, Richards had been living in a tent in an encampment near the course and had spoken of his desire to "rape and kill a woman", police said.

The family of Celia Barquin Arozamena, a champion golfer from Spain who was studying in Iowa and was found murdered on a golf course, have spoken out in the wake of her killing. She also said she might be open to considering a plan to require Iowa employers to use the government's E-Verify system to check their workers' eligibility to be in the USA, although it's not clear whether that would have prevented the farm from hiring Rivera.

"Celia was a attractive person who was loved by all her teammates and friends", said Christie Martens, Iowa State head women's golf coach.

Richards, who faces life in prison if convicted, reported in a financial affidavit that he has no job.

Paul Rounds, a public defender representing Richards, declined comment. Dogs tracked his scent and found him with fresh scratches on his face consistent with fighting and a deep laceration on his left hand. A second acquaintance told police that Richards arrived at his home on Monday appearing "disheveled and covered in blood, sand and water".

In Richards' backpack were bloodied clothes and a knife, the document says.

Police found Richards at a homeless camp. Officers later encountered and arrested him.

Hundreds of students gathered on the Iowa State campus Wednesday evening to remember Celia Barquin Arozamena, a student-athlete who was killed this week while playing golf on a course near the college campus in Ames. She became one of the best in school history and was completing her civil engineering degree after exhausting her athletic eligibility earlier this year. Iowa State President Wendy Wintersteen said in a statement on Twitter that she was "deeply saddened" by Barquin's death.

She was described as "one of the most accomplished players in Cyclone golf history", in reference to the name for the university's sports teams. She did it with a three-shot victory.

The Iowa State football team will honor Barquin Arozamena with a decal.

Barquin competed in the 2018 US Women's Open in June as an amateur.
