MASSENA, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been charged after his roommate was found dead inside the house they shared in northern New York.

St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain says Keith Bjork and Damar Buckner, both 50, got into a fight early Thursday morning at their home in Massena. When police arrived on the scene, they found a third person staggering around outside.

Officials say the officers found Buckner’s body inside the home. Police haven’t said how he died. An autopsy is scheduled Friday.

Bjork, a convicted sex offender, was charged with assault. He’s being held in the county jail. It couldn’t be learned if he has a lawyer.

Officials say Buckner was originally from Tennessee and had lived with Bjork for about a week.
