PASCO, Wash. (AP) -- Police arrested a roommate in connection with the stabbing death of a man Tuesday night at a Pasco mobile home used for housing the mentally ill.

Officers found the body just outside the front door of a unit at the Sundance Mobile Home Park and arrested the 27-year-old roommate after he answered the door.

KNDU reports the Franklin County coroner identifies the victim as 53-year-old Rodger Lincoln.

Lourdes Health Network owns the home and several others in the park and uses them as supervised housing for people with mental illnesses.

The agency issued a statement Wednesday saying it's saddened and that sympathies and prayers go to the families.
