SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) " An 83-year-old man pleaded guilty Friday to murdering his 94-year-old former roommate at a short-term care facility two years ago.

Prosecutors alleged that William Leo McDougall fatally clubbed Manh Van Nguyen  on Oct. 1, 2010, because the victim was singing in Vietnamese and he was annoyed.

The two shared a room as they recovered from hip surgery at the Palm Terrace Health Care Center in Laguna Woods.

McDougall allegedly grabbed a metal rod from their closet and hit Nguyen over the head.
