Officials release identity of man who allegedly died at the hands of his neighbor on Friday night, Coroner Jeffrey Rouse announced on Tuesday.

Karl Taylor, 55, died of asphyxia due to manual strangulation, the apparent result of an altercation with a 43-year-old male neighbor. Witnesses told police that the neighbor intervened after Taylor punched and kicked his 25-year-old girlfriend during an argument outside their house.

Police said they believe the homicide may be justifiable and plan to refer the results of their investigation to the District Attorney’s Office.
