ALOHA, Ore. (AP) -- Washington County authorities say they found an Aloha man's dismembered body in a garage freezer at a home he had been sharing with another man.

The second man has been charged with murder.

The Oregonian reports that sheriff's investigators took 29-year-old Christian Delaurentiis into custody. He was charged Friday with one count of murder in a Washington County Circuit Court hearing.

Sheriff's spokesman Bob Ray says the body of 43-year-old Phillip Lindemuth was discovered when officers executed a search warrant at a home they believe Lindemuth owned.

Ray says the men had been living together for at least five months.

An autopsy was scheduled for this weekend. Ray says investigators believe Lindemuth was killed May 4.

Officers began looking for him after he was reported missing on Wednesday.
