New charges have been filed against 31-year-old Ayoola Ajayi, the man accused of killing University of Utah student MacKenzie Lueck.

Nineteen counts of sexual exploitation of a minor were filed against Ajayi in the Third District Court Tuesday, court documents reveal.

Police seized Ajayi's computer during a search of his home on June 26. Detectives reportedly found "numerous images of children engaged in sex acts."

The 31-year-old has not entered a plea to the charges.

Ajayi is also charged with the aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, desecration of a body and obstruction of justice in connection to Lueck's death.

The 23-year-old college student was last seen in the early morning hours of June 17. Police say she and Ajayi were communicating and met at Hatch Park in North Salt Lake before she disappeared.

Court documents state Lueck's DNA and some of her personal belongings were found in the backyard of Ajayi's home.

The 23-year-old's body was discovered in Logan Canyon, 85 miles north of Salt Lake City, the week after Ajayi was arrested in June.
