18-year-old accused of killing roommate, stashing body
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — The roommate of a dead man has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and homicide.

Police said they got a tip Monday that a missing man was dead, and his body was hidden in a home on the 2300 block of Castro Lane, just south of the Valley Plaza Mall. There, officers found the body of 45-year-old Kelly William Gill.

The investigation led to Gill's roommate, 18-year-old Theron Dale Ausbie.

Police didn't give details regarding motive or when and how Gill was killed. An autopsy will be scheduled later this week to determine cause and manner of death.
