ANN ARBOR (WWJ/AP) – An autopsy has found that a competitive billiards player from Michigan, whose body was found in an Indiana pond, died from asphyxiation.

The Lake County coroner’s office also ruled 45-year-old Dawn Fital’s death an apparent homicide.

An Ann Arbor – area man accused of killing the Ypsilanti woman was arraigned Saturday at the Washtenaw County jail. Greg Noack is accused of killing Fital – who had been his girlfriend – and dumping her body in a pond behind a strip mall in Hobart, Indiana.

Two days after Noak’s Tuesday arrest in Merrillville he led officers to her body. Divers found it inside a suitcase dumped in a pond behind a Toys R Us store.
