A Nigerian man, Alex Jude Akpan, 24, has been arrested and will be charged to a Houston court for tampering with evidence after the body of a strangled woman was found in the recycling bin in his bedroom.
Akpan will likely face a murder charge over the death of the woman, who has not yet been identified, reports ABC13.
Court documents state that his mother found a woman’s body inside a green recycling bin in his room.
Investigators tried to interview Akpan, but he requested an attorney.
The Harris County Medical Examiner said the woman was found dead on September 5 in his home at 9600 block of Wellsworth Drive, Houston.
