Man Arrested in Fatal Homeless Beating

MIAMI (AP) - Miami police have arrested someone who allegedly confessed to beating to death a 41-year-old homeless man.

Sedrek A. Singleton, a 29-year-old who police say is also homeless, faces a first-degree murder charge.

Witnesses told investigators Todd Hill was sleeping on a riverfront bench early Friday when someone approached and began beating him with a blunt object.

Hill died after being taken to the hospital.

Police searching the area for a suspect stopped Singleton and noticed blood stains on his shirt.

The man allegedly told investigators he attacked Hill with a tire iron because the victim "looked at me the wrong way."
