MAGEE, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a Mississippi nursing home resident killed his roommate by stuffing a stuffing a cellophane bag containing a sandwich down the roommate’s throat.

Magee Police Chief Randy Crawford told WJTV-TV that 63-year-old Jerrell Eubanks, a resident of the Hillcrest Nursing Home, was arrested on second degree murder charges Wednesday after the Tuesday death of 83-year-old William Park.

Eubanks was arrested by the Magee police and investigators with the attorney general’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. WLBT-TV reports Eubanks is being held on $100,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.

The fraud control unit is prosecuting the case. If convicted, Eubanks could face a life sentence.
