LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles man has been charged with killing his roommate, whose body was stashed in a closet for days.

The murder charge was filed Wednesday against 58-year-old Mario Villalobos. He remains jailed and could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted.

The body of 48-year-old Cassandra Silagyi was discovered in a North Hills apartment on Monday after police were told someone might be trying to dispose of a body.

Authorities say Villalobos and the woman had shared the apartment for about a month but he was trying to evict her.

Prosecutors say Silagyi apparently was killed last Friday.

There’s no word yet on the cause of death.
