ODESSA - An Odessa man has been indicted after he confessed to slashing a man's throat back in July.

33-year-old Marcus Lacy has been formally charged with murder.

Police say he cut 62-year-old Charles Jennings throat in Jennings apartment back in July.

Police say the two were neighbors and had run-in's before.

The night of the murder, officers talked to lacy as a witness.

But they say he had been drinking and became aggressive so they locked him up.

Turns out Jennings' roommate told Police, Lacy and Jennings had been arguing in the apartment before the murder took place.

It was all because Jennings had called the cops on Lacy the week before.

Lacy later confessed to deputies in Chavez County, New Mexico.
