Former UCLA basketball player Billy Knight died on Sunday after filming a suicide video he released earlier in the day, and some details surrounding the matter are emerging.

According to TMZ Sports, Knight was arrested on June 14 in Phoenix, Ariz., for alleged child sex abuse. He was being charged with “multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor, sexual abuse and molestation of a child.” The alleged victim was only nine years old.

Knight, who was facing six felonies, ended his life Sunday.

In his video posted to YouTube, Knight said, “I just want to say that I’ve lived a life of sin. I lied, I cheated and I stole. From many people. I was a taker. That’s why my life ended up where it is now.”
