A 74-year-old man was killed after getting attacked by a homeless man with a baseball bat in Lakewood on Thursday, November 3, 2011.
The attack happened at a Walmart Store in Lakewood. The suspect, identified as 47-year-old Richard Lawerence K., reportedly grabbed an aluminum bat and randomly attacked the older man.
The security footage revealed that the suspect had been wandering the aisles before the attack. The suspect just grabbed a bat from the sporting goods display at some point.
The suspect then saw the older man and attacked him without warning. The older man was repeatedly hit in the head with the bat and died in the store.
The suspect was then arrested outside the store. Authorities confirmed that the suspect and the victim did not know each other. He was charged with murder with a special allegation that he used a deadly weapon. He faces 57 years to life in prison if convicted and remained jailed with a bail amounting to about $1 million.
