SANDY CREEK, New York (WWNY) - A Sandy Creek man faces a murder charge after state police found another man dead in his home.

Troopers say they were asked on Monday to check on the welfare of 29-year-old Charles Rothenburg of Sandy Creek. Their investigation led them on Wednesday to the home of 62-year-old Alva Parsons at 5863 Route 11.

That, they say, is where they found Rothenburg’s body.

Parsons was charged with second-degree murder and taken to Oswego County jail to await arraignment.

Troopers ask anyone with information to call them at 315-366-6600 as they continue their investigation.
