TIGARD, Ore. (AP) - A 27-year-old man is facing a murder charge after Washington County authorities say they found a man’s body hidden underneath straw at a Tigard residence.

KATU-TV reports (http://goo.gl/bDdv3D ) that Michael Troxell was arrested Wednesday in connection with the death of 68-year-old Abdul Jamil Kamawal.

Deputies had responded to Kamawal’s home after a report of an assault with a deadly weapon. Deputies say the call came in as a man was being hit with a shovel, but a cause of death hasn’t yet been confirmed.

Deputies say the suspect and the victim did not know each other.

The incident remains under investigation.
