Homicide Charges Explored against UWM Student following Death of Man in Dorm

UWM police were called to a dorm room around 11 Monday night after a 56-year-old Watertown man was found unresponsive at a desk with drug paraphernalia.

Authorities are exploring homicide charges against a 19-year-old University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee freshman student after a family friend was found dead in his dorm room. 

UWM police were called to the student's room around 11 Monday night after the victim — 56-year-old Timothy Stanczyk of Watertown — was found unresponsive at a desk, according to WISN 12 News.

Stanczyk's death was determined to be accidental, and a medical examiner's report obtained by the TV station noted there was no trauma, however drug paraphernalia, including a tourniquet, was found on the desk. The results of toxicology tests aren't yet available. 

The student was arrested and WISN reports police say the student might have provided the victim with drugs.
