NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - An affidavit says two men charged in the killing of a father of five whose body was found in a Connecticut field more than a decade ago beat him to death after deciding to rob him for drug money.

Christopher Vincenti and Timothy Johnson, both 32, have pleaded not guilty to felony murder in the January 2006 killing of 40-year-old Anthony Hamlin.

Hamlin, of Groton, was a member of the Eastern Pequot (PEE’-kwaht) Tribal Nation. He was found dead in Ledyard from blunt force trauma to the head.

The Day reports (https://bit.ly/2g3uSjV ) an unsealed arrest warrant in Johnson’s case says he told officers the two men beat Hamlin with a piece of wood and took $100 from his wallet.

It says they stripped Hamlin naked and later burned his clothes.
