Over a year before University of Utah student Mackenzie Lueck’s charred remains were found in a shallow grave, the man accused in her murder allegedly tried to kidnap and sexually abuse another woman, the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.

Ayoola Ajayi, a 31-year-old former Army IT specialist, has been charged with one count of aggravated kidnapping and three counts of forcible sexual abuse after the woman reported she was assaulted at his home in March 2018. 

Prosecutors allege Ajayi abused the woman, only identified in the charging documents as K.W., after the two met on a dating app. After one “in-person meeting,” Ajayi invited K.W “to his home to cook her dinner” on March 10, 2018, according to a probable cause affidavit.
