Tampa, FL (The Weekly Vice) - James Jugo, a 52-year-old Florida man, was jailed Monday after he allegedly beat his roommate to death over a fried chicken foot.
According to police, an argument developed between Jugo and his roommate, 56-year-old Benjamin Calderon, when Jugo took a chicken foot from a skillet as Calderon cooked in the apartment they shared.
Investigators say Jugo retaliated by beating his roommate to death.
During questioning, Jugo reportedly told detectives that he beat Calderon with his fists. A witness inside the apartment, however, told police that she saw Jugo striking Calderon with a board.
An autopsy later revealed that Calderon suffered internal bleeding after he was struck repeatedly in the face, neck and body.
Jugo was booked into jail and charged with manslaughter. He remains held in lieu of $15,000 bond.
