San Antonio man beaten to death with sledgehammer

AUSTIN, Texas — A San Antonio man has been arrested for allegedly bludgeoning another man to death with a sledgehammer at a New Year Eve party.

Investigators searching under a tarp in the yard recovered the body of a 28-year-old man outside a home on Wyoming Street on the city's east side.

The victim and suspect were not immediately identified.

Neighbors told several San Antonio media outlets that a party at the home had begun Tuesday night and lasted into Wednesday morning.

The victim and suspect are believed to have become involved in an altercation around 9 a.m.

The incident marks San Antonio's first homicide of 2014.
