A statement via Grove City Division of Police told of Brian Lee Golsby charged with aggravated murder, along with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery.
The charges against Golsby also were based on statements he gave to police, White said. Arraignment is scheduled for Monday at 9 a.m.
Authorities say Tokes' vehicle later was found in Columbus. The next day her friends reported her missing, police told the news station.
Tokes is from Northwest Ohio and a graduate of Anthony Wayne High School in Whitehouse.
White said there was no evidence of a connection between Tokes and Golsby and that the first interaction between them is believed to have happened shortly after Tokes left work the night of her murder.
A 29-year-old man has been arrested and charged with aggravated murder in connection with the death of Ohio State University student Reagan Tokes. The GoFundMe page is being used to raise $50,000, which will be used towards creating a scholarship for a student to attend a college of their dreams, something that Reagan did. They matched his DNA with evidence gathered in and around the vehicle.
Too's Under High will hold a fundraiser on Tuesday from 8 p.m.to close, and donate 100 percent of profits to Tokes' family.
While they are not calling it a confession, investigators say during questioning Goldsby made statements consistent with the evidence police uncovered.
Golsby in 2010 was arrested for robbing a woman and then robbing and raping another two weeks later in an apartment complex parking lot. The victim said her toddler was in the vehicle with her when she was assaulted and forced to perform oral sex on Golsby at knifepoint.
