BORREGO SPRINGS (CNS) - A 52-year-old man has been arrested for bludgeoning and strangling a man in Borrego Springs Saturday.
Brett Leslie Boynton, 55, was found dead Saturday morning. His cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma with possible strangulation.
Boynton's roommate, Mark Peter Waugh, 53, was arrested and booked into jail Sunday on suspicion of one count of murder, according to sheriff's detectives.
