KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- A man from Warsaw has been preliminarily charged with murder after allegedly strangling his roommate with a cord.

Lionel Dale King, 51, was found apparently strangled to death in his home at the Hide-Away-Hills Mobile Home Park by Kosciusko County Sheriff's Deputies. King's family had contacted the sheriff's department after King's roommate, Robert Hurley, 54, had contacted them regarding the strangling.

Deputies detained Hurley without incident. Crime scene investigators obtained evidence that King's body was strangled by a cord and then dragged into a bedroom in the home.

The cause of death has not been formally determined.
