ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Orlando police officers have charged a security guard with strangling to death a woman who lived in a downtown Orlando apartment building where he worked.

Stephen Duxbury was charged Friday with first-degree murder, sexual battery and burglary.

He worked as a guard at the Uptown Place Apartments where Sasha Samsudean lived.

Her body was found earlier this month in her apartment.

Detectives say physical evidence led them to the 33-year-old Duxbury. Police officials say the murder was a crime of opportunity.

Duxbury was being held at a jail in Volusia County, where he was arrested, pending a move to Orange County.
