LAS VEGAS -- The Mohave County Coroner's Office has identified the body found near White Hills, Ariz. Feb. 19 as Sheila Linke, a Las Vegas woman who Metro Police say was killed by her roommate.

Linke was first reported missing in January. However, in February, Linke's roommate 51-year-old Edward Norman Kopp told police he killed her after a fight.

He told officers she had asked him and his girlfriend to move out and threatened him with a knife. He said he killed her and took her body to Arizona.

The coroner's office says Linke's cause of death was ligature strangulation due to assault and blunt force trauma to the head. The manner of death is listed as homicide.

Kopp is being charged with murder.
