The warrant states Hans Hoyningen-Huene let Casias live there in exchange for Casias doing some home maintenance, but Hoyningen-Huene was not happy with the work. Investigators say that prompted the fight between the two men, and at one point Hoyningen-Huene puts Casias in a sleeper hold, killing Casias.
