SAN ANTONIO -- Police have released some shocking details in a story KENS 5 first brought to you earlier this month.

Police said a man is in jail for the murder of 29-year-old Russell McKinley.

McKinley's body was found floating in Salado Creek on May 9, and police initially thought the bad weather may have played a role in his death.

But now authorities tell KENS 5 that Allen Fluitt has been charged with McKinley's murder.

Police said they were able to piece together evidence after they found trauma on McKinley's body.
