The Knoxville News Sentinel is reporting that a 46-year-old registered sex offender was charged with reckless homicide after he strangled a woman during "kinky sex."

According to Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton, Lonnie Lee White, 130 Kerns Lane, was being held today in lieu of $250,000 bond. He is accused of killing Misty Dawn Wilmeth.

"I've never seen one like this," Stockton, who has been in law enforcement for 26 years, said this morning. The sheriff said White called police shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday and told them that  Wilmeth was dead. When officers arrived, they found Wilmeth's nude body in the back yard of White's rural residence.

White, Stockton said, was "sitting on a chair on the porch" awaiting officers.

"This happened in the house and he dragged her outside," Stockton said. White offered no explanation for taking the woman's body outside.
