FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- The Frederick County Sheriff's Office says a man has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of a woman whose body was found in the same apartment complex he lives in.

Fifty-one-year-old Antwine Dwayne Snowden was arrested Tuesday in the death of 61-year-old Gloria Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick was found dead in her Frederick apartment on April 22 after she failed to show up for work.

Deputies say Snowden had a social relationship with Fitzpatrick and had been in her apartment several times.

The News-Post of Frederick reports (http://bit.ly/1bHzaVy) that the medical examiner determined that Fitzpatrick died from multiple injuries consistent with asphyxiation or strangulation.

Snowden is being held without bail.
