Teen found guilty in Iowa beating death

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Des Moines teen has been found guilty of second-degree murder in the beating death of another man.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1hkkfjJ) that a Polk County District Court jury deliberated less than three hours Tuesday before finding 18-year-old Kent Anthony Tyler III guilty for his role in the Aug. 25 death of 40-year-old Richard Daughenbaugh.

Tyler was one of four people charged in the attack. Police say Tyler and the others, who face later trial dates, attacked Daughenbaugh following an altercation between Daughenbaugh and the men. Daughenbaugh was found severely beaten in a parking lot near the Center Street bridge. He later died at a hospital.

Tyler faces up to 50 years in prison when he is sentenced.
