Domenic Micheli, who is accused of murdering his former boss â€”Â 46-year-old Joel Paavola â€” was arrested by Kentucky State Police on Tuesday night.
Here is a breakdown of the timing of events:
April 2017 (14 months ago)
According to Metro Police, Micheli was fired from The Balance Training center where he worked, according to his LinkedIn profile, as a personal trainer. Paavola, who worked as a strength and conditioning coach at the fitness center, fired him for reasons that are still unknown.
Micheli was arrested in Washington, D.C. by US Secret Service for ignoring a White House security officerâ€™s directions to move his car. He was charged with unlawful entry and failure to obey, and in the trial, Micheli was deemed competent. A psychologist with Washingtonâ€™s behavioral health department reported that Micheli was "alert, cooperative, and very pleasant" during an examination, according to a federal court document. The judge in the case found there was no reasonable cause to believe Micheli required additional mental health screenings.
