The man used a fake name on a social media platform when he told her he had nude photos of her and threatened to release them to her family and friends if she didn't send him more photos and videos. Later he began to demand sex with her.
The man claimed she accidentally fell on a corn rake, but prosecutors say medical evidence showed she'd been stabbed in the back with it. A prosecutor said Tuesday that he "had to find a way to keep that farm."
