A Lexington man has been charged with Murder in the death of a 55-year-old man on Augusta Court. Investigators located Timothy L. Fogle, 40, at the Lexington Transit Center Saturday, August 5 after obtaining an arrest warrant.

Officers were dispatched to the Augusta Arms apartments Friday, August 4 after family members of the victim had not heard from him for some time and became concerned. The victim, identified by the Fayette County Coroner's office as 55-year-old Theodore Custard, was found deceased in his residence from sharp force injuries.

Through the course of the investigation detectives learned that the victim and Fogle were acquaintances. It appears there was some type of struggle in the apartment which led to the victim’s death.
