GROVE CITY, Ohio -- A 29-year-old man has been arrested and charged with aggravated murder in connection with the death of Ohio State University student Reagan Tokes.

Brian Lee Golsby also is charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery, according to the Grove City Division of Police.

Tokes, a 21-year-old senior at Ohio State, was shot to death Wednesday night after leaving work at Bodega Columbus, the Franklin County Coroner’s office said.

Her roommates filed a missing person report the following morning; the same day, a jogger would discover her body near the entrance to Scioto Grove Metro Park.

"We extend our heartfelt sympathy to her family and friends," Ohio State said in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this extremely difficult time."

Tokes, who would have celebrated her 22nd birthday March 9, had been preparing to graduate with a degree in psychology.

Grove City police said the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Columbus Division of Police and The Ohio State University Police Division helped in the investigation.
