Gillerson, a resident there, was fatally beaten by his roommate. The two men had an argument that escalated into a fight. Gillerson's roommate pushed him on to a coffee table and once he was down, grabbed what furniture he could find to beat Gillerson with, including a computer monitor and a coffee table leg. Witnesses told police that after Gillerson was unconscious on the floor his roommate put a butter knife in Gillerson's hand.
