    Details:

    The following information has been summarized in part from the Criminal Arrest Affidavit charging Fields with 2nd Degree Murder.

    On March 11, 2014 at approximately 2:20 pm, Michael Fields called 9-1-1 and advised that he found a deceased woman outside his residence at 2709 St Cloud Oaks Drive in Valrico.

    When deputies arrived, Michael Fields pointed out a deceased female lying on the ground between his house at 2707 and 2709 St Cloud Oaks Drive. Fields identified the victim to be Christina Mahzamani. Homicide detectives later confirmed her identity as Christina Mahzamani.

    Crime scene technicians and homicide detectives responded to the scene and during their investigation discovered drag marks on the grass and leaves leading from the back yard of 2707 St Cloud Oaks Drive towards the middle of the two houses. A cinder block with what was identified as blood was discovered directly behind 2707 St. Cloud Oaks Drive. Also an area of dirt with what appeared to be blood and a partial shoe print was found behind 2707 Cloud Oaks Drive. The shoe impression was consistent with the sole of the
    shoes that Fields was wearing.

    A search of the Fields' bedroom inside his residence revealed a pair of pajama pants with what appeared to blood on the front of the pants. Fields lived at this location with the owners of the residence.

    Detectives interviewed Fields at the crime scene and he stated he was the boyfriend of Mahzamani. Fields stated that on March 09, 2014 at approximately 11 p.m. Mahzamani came to visit him at his house and stayed for a short time before she drove away in her vehicle. He stated he had no further contact with her.

    On March 10, 2014, at approximately 2 p.m., deputies responded to a report of an abandoned vehicle blocking a driveway at 511 Briar Meadows Drive in Valrico. When deputies arrived, the vehicle was identified as a 2013 Buick Enclave registered to Christina Mahzamani. This location is approximately 1/2 mile from 2707 St Cloud Oaks Drive. A neighborhood survey revealed that the vehicle
    was not there as of midnight on March 10, but was later spotted between 2:30 and 3:30 a.m. abandoned in front of the house. Mahzamani's car keys and other personal items were found inside the car.

    On March 10, 2014 at approximately 8:45 p.m., deputies responded to 2013 Elk Springs Drive in Brandon and met with Vali Mahzamani to take a missing persons report. Vali Mahzamani stated he received a call earlier that day from his son, who was out of state and said his son told him that his children ages 13, 9 and 7 years old had called and said their mother Christina Mahzamani left them at home on the evening of March 09, 2014 at approximately 9 p.m. and never returned home. Vali picked the kids up and brought them back to his house.

    Homicide detectives arrested Fields while still at the crime scene and took him to the Criminal Investigation Division for further questioning. He was later booked into the Hillsborough County Jail earlier this morning with no bond.

    On the evening of March 11, 2014, the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office conducted an autopsy on Christina Mahzamani and listed the cause of death as bludgeoning of her head and the manner of death Homicide.
