CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A man has been arrested in eastern Iowa after another man was found dead near a church.

Cedar Rapids police say 44-year-old Travis Lynn Standlee was arrested Wednesday in connection with the death of Raymond Ursino. He faces charges of involuntary manslaughter and willful injury causing serious injury. Court records do not list the arrest or whether he has any legal representation.

Police found the 56-year-old Ursino on the ground near a church early Saturday. Preliminary findings from an autopsy show he was strangled. Additional information has not been released.

Police say interviews with the community led to Standlee’s arrest. He was taken to a local jail.
