Authorities in Fort Worth are questioning a 16-year-old about the apparent strangling of his stepfather.

Police responded Sunday to a call about a domestic dispute and found a 47-year-old man not breathing. He died later at a hospital.

The Tarrant County medical examiner's office didn't immediately rule on a cause of death but the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Monday a preliminary police report indicated the man was strangled by his stepson.

Name of the victim was not immediately disclosed.

Police Sgt. Pedro Criado said charges were expected to be filed.
