SLIDELL, La. (AP) - Former Seattle Seahawks safety Terreal Bierria has been arrested in the killing of a Louisiana man.

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff Jack Strain said Tuesday that Bierria, who played for Seattle in 2002 and 2004, has been charged with one count of first-degree murder.

Authorities say the victim was 29-year-old Soron Salter of Slidell. He was found on the floor of a home with wounds indicating a violent struggle. They say Bierria's car was seen at the house and he admitted himself to a hospital for cuts to his hands and arms.

Strain says investigators obtained an arrest warrant for the 30-year-old and booked him into the parish jail, where he is being held without bond. Booking documents do not list an attorney.

Bierria was the 120th overall pick in the 2002 draft by the Seahawks. He played college football at Georgia.
