Man arrested in connection to roommate's murder

AUSTIN - Police have arrested the roommate of a man found murdered in a northeast Austin apartment last month.

APD said officers made a check welfare call to a home along Berkman Drive around 12:45 p.m. Aug. 31, and located the body of Charles Edward Peterson III, 59, in the home. The Travis County Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy on Peterson on Friday morning, and ruled his death a homicide.

Peterson's roommate, 27-year-old Dijon Reid, was arrested by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force on Sept. 5 in connection to the case. 

Reid was also wanted for failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements, a state felony.
