The former roommate of missing Baylor University basketball player Patrick Dennehy was charged Monday with murder, authorities said.

The warrant naming Carlton Dotson was issued by police in Waco, Texas, where Dennehy has been missing since mid-June, Chestertown Police Chief Walter Coryell said.

Two officers escorted Dotson, who was wearing handcuffs, into the police department about 9:20 p.m.
