Four Face Murder Charges In Baseball Beating Death

It was a vicious random crime. And now three men and a woman who lawmen say viciously beat a Washington man with a baseball bat over the weekend, face murder charges. Beaufort County Sheriff Alan Jordan says all four suspects are now in custody in the death of 44-year-old Lorenzo Perez outside his Hickory Drive home. Perez died of his injuries Thursday night at Pitt County Memorial Hospital. Jordan says robbery was a motive. One of the suspects is 14, two are 17, and the fourth is 21 years old.
