A Mexico Beach man is in the Bay County Jail accused of brutally killing his roommate.
31-year-old Aaron Scott Garner has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
Investigators say Garner thought 57-year-old Rebecca Ann Shepard was over-charging him rent.
He allegedly beat her unconscious with a wooden stick early Wednesday and then attempted to rape her.
Authorities describe Garner as a drifter who was renting a room in one of the units at the Rustic Sands Resort Campground.
