The private broadcaster TV JOJ reported that the police based the charges on two seized machines guns that were to be used to kill Žilinka. The machine guns were revealed by Miroslav Marček, who has also confessed to shooting Kuciak and Kušnírová. He has been collaborating with the police for several months.

He handed both guns to the police on the day he was detained in Kolárovo (Nitra Region), claiming that he had received them from Andruskó, TASR reported.
