Phoenix police Saturday found the body of a man they say was killed by his boyfriend.

“Investigators believe that Armendariz and Lancaster got into a domestic- violence-related physical altercation, which caused the death of Lancaster,” said a news release from Sgt.

Armendariz was booked into the Maricopa County jail in downtown Phoenix.
