A man accused of killing his new roommate was brought before a judge this afternoon in San Diego’s North County courthouse.

Twenty-four-year-old Asher Freeman had only recently rented a room from David Diaz, according to a prosecutor. Diaz complained to his new renter about his loud music, and the disagreement somehow ended in a fatal confrontation, according to deputy district attorney Paul Myers.

It was Diaz who phoned 911 last Wednesday, August 7, according to Carlsbad police.

When police responded to the home before 6 p.m., in the 3500 block of Sierra Morena Drive, they were first told that there had been two intruders, according to the prosecutor.

In less than 24 hours, David Diaz, 31, was arrested on suspicion of murder and obstructing a peace officer. Diaz pleads not-guilty through public defender Onell Soto.

Honorable Judge Marshall Hockett ordered Diaz held in lieu of $5 million bail and set his next court date for August 21, 2013.

While we all know that the cost of a place to live in SD County is high, and especially along the coast, who in his right mind would have agreed to share his digs with that dude? Hey folks, ya' gotta' be careful about things like roommates!
