LOS ANGELES -- A man was in custody Wednesday for allegedly beating his roommate to death with a frying pan in the house they shared in South Los Angeles, police said.
Kevan Beech, 43, was booked for murder in the death of 55-year-old Kenneth Flanders, whose body was found in his bedroom, the Los Angeles Police Department reported. Beech was held on $1 million bail, according to the sheriff's department.
Officers were called to the 700 block of East 47th Street about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, after Flanders' relatives came upon the crime scene, the LAPD reported. "Beach was reportedly angry with Flanders because he refused to give him money," the LAPD reported. "After killing Flanders, Beech remained in the house for at least one day before relatives came to check on Flanders ..."
Detectives believe Flanders was fatally beaten with an iron frying pan.
