A Virginia Tech linebacker charged with the fatal beating of a Tinder game after the date turned out to be a 40-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder. was indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury in the murder of restaurant manager Jerry Paul Smith on Tuesday, The Roanoke Times reported.

Etute, a freshman at Virginia Tech, was arrested on June 2 for the May 31 murder.

Prosecutors allege that Etute met Smith on Tinder in April when the older man reportedly posed as a woman named ‘Angie’ and the two were having oral s*x.

Murder

Etute, 18, left, was charged with the murder of Jerry Paul Smith, 40, right, after he discovered that Smith was not a woman named ‘Angie’, as he had thought.

Etute was a first-year linebacker on the Virginia Tech football team.

A month later, Etute returned to Smith’s apartment in downtown Blacksburg to find out if Smith was male or female, police said.wikipedia

Etute used the flashlight on his phone in the darkened apartment to get a better look at Smith before realizing the victim’s gender and punching and stomping the man to death, prosecutors said.

Death

Smith was found dead in his apartment the next day, police said, and a medical examiner’s office ruled that Smith died of blunt force trauma to the head.

Etute, who has been out on a $ 75,000 guaranteed bond, is scheduled to live with his family in Virginia Beach and be monitored electronically, to return to court on November 18.

Prosecutors say Etute punched Smith in the face five times before he fell to the ground. He then allegedly hit the victim at least five more times and stomped on his head.

As the soccer player was leaving, prosecutors say, Etute heard “bubbling and gurgling” coming from Smith, but did not call police.

An autopsy report revealed that all the bones in Smith’s face were broken and his teeth were missing, the Richmond-Times Dispatch reported.

Family

Etute reportedly told police after his arrest in June that Smith did not defend himself, according to WSLS.com.

His attorney, James Turk, previously told DailyMail.com that Smith had several social media accounts in which he posed as a woman named ‘Angie’.

It seemed that Smith lived as a man during his everyday life, including at work, and his family referred to him using masculine pronouns.

“No one deserves to die,” Turk told reporters after his client’s arrest, “but I don’t mind saying, don’t pretend you’re something you’re not.”

Investigation

“Don’t target or attract anyone under that perception,” he said. ‘That is wrong.’

In an obituary, Smith’s family remembered the restaurant manager, who was nicknamed ‘Gigi’ by his nephews, as a ‘young man educated throughout his life’.

Etute was suspended from his school and soccer team during the investigation.
