Man found dead by roommate in London

The Laurel County Sheriff's Office is investigating a death in London following a fight between two roommates.

Kenneth E. Vincent was found dead about 1:30 p.m. Sunday. According to a news release from Sheriff John Root's office Vincent, 36, and his roommate Freddy Couch, 56, got into a fist fight at their home on Laurel Road after an argument.

Vincent allegedly grabbed a knife, but Couch was able to overpower him, the release said.

Neither man called for police or for medical help after the fight ended. Instead, they went to sleep — Couch in his bedroom, and Vincent on the living room floor. Alcohol was involved in the incident, the release said.

When Couch woke up, he found Vincent dead on the floor. A cause of death had not been determined Sunday.

Following the investigation by the sheriff's office, the case will be presented to the Laurel County Grand Jury for possible indictment, the release said.
