A 19-year-old man has been charged with fatally beating a Waterloo, Iowa man.

Paris Anding was arrested Thursday and is being held in Black Hawk County Jail on a second-degree murder charge.

Anding is accused of beating 19-year-old Marcellus Andrews.

Police say Andrews and some friends had been involved in a dispute with another group. A fight between the two groups erupted early in the morning of Aug. 19. Andrews died two days later when life support was removed.

There were initial reports that a hate crime was involved because anti-gay slurs had been made about Andrews.

But police say no slurs were mentioned by the people interviewed
and that the fight was a result of "some bad blood" between the
two groups.
