ERLANGER, KY (FOX19) -

A man arrested and charged for a murder in Erlanger appeared in court on Thursday.

Timothy Grissett, 50, who is accused of murdering Tasha Nichole Campbell, 26, was taken into custody without incident last week in South Carolina.

During a court hearing on Thursday, it was revealed that Grissett met Campbell on a web site called backpage.com

Erlanger police detectives revealed they believe Campbell and another man met at a Waffle House, and then Campbell took that man's car and drove to meet Grissett at his home in Erlanger.

Detectives say something happened in that time, and ultimately, Grissett stabbed Campbell multiple times, strangled her and then left her dead.

"It seems to indicate the way the scene was found that she had been dead for a few days," said Rob Sanders, Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney. "Whether that was 2 days or 3 days, again, number one, it really doesn't make a difference and I don't think we're far enough along to commit to a very specific time frame."

Police are not certain on the exact cause of death.

"Until I get the medical examiners report we won't know for certain whether she was stabbed to death or strangled. At this point the stab injuries look severe enough that they certainly could have caused the death", said Sanders.

Investigators say at some point later, Grissett called both his ex-wife and another family member, revealing he had just killed someone.

Grissett reportedly then took the man's car that Campbell had arrived in and was found hiding in the woods in Newberry, South Carolina.
