  A 21-year-old Rochelle man is now facing murder charges in the death of a man after a fight.

 

  Gary Rothwell, agent in charge of the GBI's Perry office, says Blake Howard is charged in this weekend's death of 45-year-old James Alexander.

 

   Rothwell says autopsy results concluded Alexander died from blunt force trauma.

 

   He says the two men knew each other and got into a fight Sunday on Cherry Tree Lane in Rochelle.

 

   Rothwell says they believe both men were under the influence of alcohol, drugs or both.

 

   Howard is in the Wilcox County jail and the GBI continues to investigate.
