Docquen Jovo Watkins Accused Of Killing Boyfriend Over ‘Overwatch’ Video Game
Officials have accused a man of killing his boyfriend of 10 years when a fight broke out between the two over a video game.
Docquen Jovo Watkins, 31, received a second-degree murder charge on Monday and is currently being held in the Oakland County Jail without bond.
According to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, Watkins was been accused of choking boyfriend Rory Teasley, 28, after the couple got into an argument over the video game Overwatch, which is a team shooter created by Blizzard Entertainment.
Watkins first called the sheriff’s office late Thursday night, where he allegedly told officers “he and his boyfriend had gotten into a fight and the boyfriend was ‘sleeping’ on the couch.”
Teasley was not breathing in the apartment and was later pronounced dead after being transported to a hospital.
Sheriff Michael Bouchard called the disagreement which may have caused the violence “trivial and insignificant.” Bouchard finished by saying “there is never a reason where violence is acceptable over a disagreement. Those that do so will be held accountable.”
Watkins is due to appear in court on Jan 18.
