LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A Little Rock man is dead after police found him badly beaten at a home on South Broadway Street.

Police were called around 5:45 p.m. about an assault in progress. They say that the man, later identified as 40-year-old Ron Young was beaten so badly that he died short after arriving at a nearby hospital.

Police questioned a woman who was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Officers believe the two were in a relationship and both were living in and renovating the home.

A neighbor across the street claimed she witnessed the whole even unfold. She said she heard some yelling and then saw the woman come out of the house holding a baseball bat and crying. Police would not confirm if that was the weapon used in the beating.

At this time, no charges have been filed.

Police say this was Little Rock's sixth homicide of the year.
