A Lawrenceville, Illinois man was arrested on Friday morning following a fatal incident that happened in Knox County, Indiana.
According to the Knox County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a single-vehicle crash around 2:00 a.m. on Friday at a home in the 2800 block of South Old U.S. 41 in Vincennes, Indiana.
The sheriff's office says that when deputies arrived at the scene, they found that a car had crashed into the front porch of the home.
According to a statement from KCSO, the passenger of that car, who was identified as 44-year-old C.C. Lee Cochran, was found standing in the front yard of the residence that the car had crashed into.
According to KCSO, the driver of the vehicle had exited the car and entered the house that the car had crashed into.
Deputies found the driver of the vehicle lying on the living room floor inside the home with "deep lacerations." He was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical responders and was later identified as 30-year-old Christopher Edward Anderson of Knox County.
Authorities say that preliminary investigation determined that Anderson's wounds/death were not caused by the car crash, but that his exact cause of death wasn't being released at this time, pending an autopsy report.
Originally, Cochran was charged with Involuntary Manslaughter, however, that charge was elevated to Murder later on Friday after detectives met with Knox County Prosecutor. He's booked into the Knox County Jail on no bond.
