WILHOIT, Ariz. (AP) - Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say a Wilhoit man has been arrested for allegedly killing his roommate.
They say 68-year-old Terry Ingle has been booked into the Prescott jail's holding facility on suspicion of first-degree homicide, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, arson to an occupied structure, criminal damage and animal cruelty.
Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to Ingle's home near the 8400 block of South Highway 89 around 3 a.m. Tuesday about a disturbance. Ingle allegedly shot his roommate, 59-year-old Dominic Babel, and two dogs and set his wheelchair on fire.
Authorities say Babel found dead at the scene.
They say Ingle stabbed himself before deputies arrived on the home and he was taken to a Prescott hospital for treatment before being booked into jail.
YCSO's Dwight D'Evelyn says Ingle admitted to shooting his roommate and several firearms have been seized.
