Tik Tok star Rory Teasley, 28, was strangled on January 6th. His boyfriend, Docquen Jovo Watkins, 31, has been charged in the death with second degree murder. The two men were fighting over a video game, according to police.

When police arrived Watkins claimed Teasley was “sleeping” on the couch in his apartment. But authorities found the Tik Tok star unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s office released a statement claiming Watkins had choked Teasley to death during the fight.

“We see far too often across the country these days when people resort to violence over trivial and insignificant disagreements,” Sheriff Michael Bouchard said. “There is never a reason where violence is acceptable over a disagreement,” Bouchard added.  “Those who do so will be held accountable.”
