New Mexico State Police have arrested a Romeroville man on a charge of voluntary manslaughter after he allegedly held his father-in-law in a choke hold.
State Police spokesman Eric Garcia says officers are investigating the death Friday of 59-year-old Ernest Gutierrez, also of Romeroville.
Garcia says Gutierrez and his 31-year-old son-in-law, Mica Murray, were fighting at a residence south of Las Vegas.
Garcia says an ambulance was called to the residence and Gutierrez was pronounced dead later at Alta Vista Regional Hospital.
