The Bismarck Tribune reports that 65-year-old Robert L. Mitchell of Mandan was found dead in a relative's bed Sunday morning.

Mitchell was one of two men taken into custody and questioned after the body of 60-year-old Gloria Schmidt-Lozensky was found dead in her mobile home early Friday morning. Police have ruled her death a homicide.

Authorities say Mitchell and Schmidt-Lozensky knew each other. The cause of his death is not yet known.
