The second witness told police Rogers was punching the concrete steps while he was asking about it and that Rogers appeared upset, according to the complaint.
The second witness had been seeing Amos for about two weeks, according to the complaint.
A third and a fourth witness told police that they saw Rogers strike Amos in the face and then kiss her. A short time later, the witnesses told police they saw Rogers and Amos walk from the front steps to the side of the house and enter through a side door, according to the complaint.
Neither witness saw Rogers leave the residence. A while later, the two witnesses observed one of the other witnesses open the front door to the residence and saw Amos dead, according to the complaint.
Rogers allegedly went to a residence on Kanawha Street and told the individuals there that he had some "evil [expletive]" that he wanted to tell them about. The people at that home said Rogers appeared to be sweaty and had a small bloody wound on one of his hands, according to the complaint.
Rutherford said deputies, members of the Kanawha Bureau of Investigation and the sheriff's department SWAT team combed the woods around Fairview Drive and Coal River Road until about 1 a.m. Monday looking for Rogers, who was last seen on Fairview Drive. Searchers went out again about 7 a.m.
Rutherford said Rogers was afraid to turn himself in for fear of being hurt. Rutherford said an acquaintance talked Rogers into surrendering to deputies. Rogers was arrested without further incident, handcuffed and given water, Rutherford said.
Rogers was arraigned in Kanawha County Magistrate Court and taken to the South Central Regional Jail.
