Early Sunday morning a 34-year-old man was strangled inside a house in the 4500 block of 44th street.
Police believe Jack Stanfield was strangled around 2:15 Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead at UMC.
Police arrested and charged 36-year-old Ralph Tickle with Stanfield's murder.
NewsChannel 11 spoke with neighbors Sunday who say Tickle actually lives in the house where the strangling occurred.
They say Tickle is a truck driver who keeps to himself and is rarely home. Tickle remained in the Lubbock County Jail Sunday evening.
