A Michigan man has been charged with murdering his 10-year-old partner after a heated debate on Overwatch. Although it is not clear exactly what the couple was fighting, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office (via NBC) the men were sleeping in different rooms when the accused entered the room and strangled his boyfriend on the sofa.

The incident took place on Thursday, January 6, in Pontiac, a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. Police were alerted to the case when Dawin Jovo Watkins, the alleged killer, called deputies to report a domestic dispute between him and his longtime partner Rory Tesley. According to police, “she and her boyfriend had a fight and the boyfriend was sleeping on the sofa at the time of the call.”
When authorities arrived at the apartment, they found Tesli unconscious and unable to breathe. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Sheriff Michael Bouchard said, “We often see people across the country these days resorting to violence over minor and minor differences.” “There is no reason why violence over dissent is acceptable. Those who do so will be held accountable.”
Watkins is currently being held without charge in Auckland County Jail on a second-degree murder charge. He is scheduled to appear in court on January 18.
