However, the new charges, provide a more chilling account,

The amended complaint says Driver kidnapped Irion at gunpoint with intent to bring her to the location where her remains were eventually discovered in Churchill County, per Fox News.

The complaint goes on to say Driver's actions were "for the purpose of committing sexual assault and/or for the purpose of killing her," according to Fox News.

The complaint further alleges that Driver raped the teen between the location where she was abducted "and near a rural portion of northern Churchill County."

According to Crimeonline, in light of the additional allegations, Driver is now facing "new charges of robbery with the use of a deadly weapon, burglary of a motor vehicle, illegal firearm possession, sexual assault, and destruction of evidence."

As The Sun previously reported security video showed a masked man wearing a hooded sweatshirt getting into her car before her disappearance and death.

Naomi was scrolling social media in her car while waiting for the shuttle to show up when she was approached by the masked, hooded man.

According to Casey, who was one of the only people outside of police to see the footage in its entirety, the man did or said something that caused his sister to move to the passenger seat.
