A 62-year-old homeless man died after being attacked by another homeless man in Iowa, and now police say the suspect has been charged with murder.
Officials said Thacker had received serious head and facial injuries and was rushed to a local hospital. He died five days later from his injuries.
After Thacker died his death was ruled a homicide. Officials said the charges against Hyde were then upgraded to first-degree murder.
Polk County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Paul Parizek told KCRG the victim and the suspect were both homeless and the fight appeared to be over a homeless camp.
