LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky nursing home resident is accused of killing another resident at the facility.

Police arrested Robert Reynolds, 35, known as "The Reverend", for killing Gary Glueck, 71.

Both men were residents of the Scottsville Manor nursing home.

Officials say Glueck died from strangulation after being stabbed with a pen and having an electrical cord wrapped around his neck.

Police say the men had been arguing.

"The gentleman who had changed his name, his legal name, to The Reverend, came to the nurse's station to get a drink of water and said he had killed Gary."

The nursing home says additional staff are being brought in to reassure other residents that they're safe.
