HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

New details were uncovered in the murder of a UAH student.

Investigators revealed Jarrod Lockett was allegedly behind a prostitution website.

Back in December 2012, when Lockett was murdered, there was no indication as to why it happened. When Jovontai and Jovonta Dickerson were arrested for the crime, it was still unclear what motivated them to kill Lockett, but that all changed on Thursday during the twins' preliminary hearing when an HPD investigator shared his findings with the court.

He said Lockett was heading up a prostitution service of sorts, a catfish scheme.

Investigators said Lockett was posing as a female on Facebook to get area girls to work for him. The girls were led to believe they would be paid for sex, but they never received any money.

Jovonta Dickerson was allegedly one of those girls.

Witnesses told police she realized it was a scam after having sex multiple times without getting paid and wanted revenge - asking her brother, Jovontai, for help.

Police said the Dickerson twins and two other people went to the Madison Garden Apartments armed with a knife, a sock full of rocks, and a handgun.

An argument broke out when the Dickerson twins demanded money from Lockett.

Lockett was shot in his head in the complex parking lot.

He died less than two weeks later.

"No matter what the victim of any crime like this has done in their past, they do not deserve to be murdered," said Assistant District Attorney, Jay Town.

The case was bound over to a grand jury for indictment, and the motion for the bond reduction of Jovontai Dickerson withdrawn.
