Nathaniel David Rowland (pictured right) will remain in jail at least until his bond hearing at an undetermined date. It is unknown if he has a lawyer.

Police say the 24-year-old Rowland killed 21-year-old University of South Carolina student Samantha Josephson on Friday after she got into his car thinking it was her Uber ride.

The State newspaper quotes Marci Josephson as saying Sunday that her daughter’s killer has “taken away a piece of our heart, soul and life.”

Marci Josephson said her daughter was bubbly, loving and full of life and planned to go to law school after graduating in May.
