MILWAUKEE (AP) - Two people have been charged in the beating death of a Milwaukee man, and authorities say a video of the attack was posted to the victim’s own Snapchat social media account.

The criminal complaint filed this week says that video was used to identify one of Delvin Mendoza-Chaparro’s attackers as 20-year-old Devin Katzfey, of Milwaukee. Katzfey and an alleged accomplice each face one count of first-degree reckless homicide. Two other suspects may be charged.

The complaint says they believed Mendoza-Chaparro tried to steal drug paraphernalia, though he denied it as he was beaten Monday.

The video posted to his Snapchat account was recorded as he lay bloodied on the kitchen floor. His body was found in an alley about five blocks away.

A warrant remained out Friday for Katzfey’s arrest.
