Law enforcement concluded that the killing was not at random, as there was a significant amount of marijuana in Uppal’s car.

Uppal had just graduated from Temple University’s Beasley School of Law in July.

Rauf was taken into custody by New York State Police on Monday. Law enforcement had been investigating the murder for about three weeks.
