LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Louisiana police say a homeless man is accused of bludgeoning a 68-year-old man to death.

Lake Charles police say in a news release that they have arrested 29-year-old Rolando Anthony Massingill on a warrant accusing him of first-degree murder in the death of Wayne Keith Reynaud.

Deputy Chief Mark Kraus says detectives got information that Massingill was in Kinder, about 35 miles northwest of Lake Charles. He says they, Kinder police, federal marshals and Allen Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested him in a motel.

Kraus says Reynaud’s body was found Sunday night in his home. He says in an email that detectives are investigating the connection between the men and a possible motive.

Kraus says in the news release that the arrest warrant set Massingill’s bond at $1 million.
