Resident Beats Resident To Death At Assisted Living Facility

Police are trying to determine why a man at an assisted living center beat another resident to death late Wednesday night. 

The beating happened just outside the side door of the assisted living center.

According to police, a 70-year-old resident was outside sitting on a bench when a 43-year-old  resident went out behind him.

There were staff people in the next room folding towels and their attention was drawn outside when they heard a commotion.

An employee called the Catawba County 911 Center to report the assault at 11:54 p.m. 

When officers arrived, they found the victim unconscious.  He suffered from an apparent head injury and died at the scene.

The assailant ran a few blocks but authorities caught him quickly. He has been charged with murder. For more, read the story.
