Man charged after woman found strangled to death at motel

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) - A man has been charged in connection with the strangulation death of a woman whose body was found at a St. Augustine motel.

Local media outlets report the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office says 38-year-old Christopher William McCook was arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree murder with a deadly weapon in the death of Keneshia C. Gadson.

Deputies say 29-year-old Gadson was found dead Tuesday night at the Star Motel. The medical examiner determined the cause of death was strangulation.

Officials say they found McCook the next morning at a nearby Denny's restaurant.

It's not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
