TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a fourth person is expected to face charges in connection with the beating death of a Terre Haute radio personality.

Police say a warrant was issued for a 47-year-old man who is was hospitalized.

Police earlier said a 25-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man from Terre Haute were arrested and a 28-year-old Rockville man also was being held following the death of Matt Luecking, who worked for WFNB-FM. A hearing for all three is scheduled Friday.

An autopsy determined Luecking died of blunt force trauma. Police say investigators believe Luecking was beaten with a baseball bat while in bed.

Officers found Luecking’s body Monday at an apartment. His vehicle was missing and authorities found two men trying to use Luecking’s bank card at a store in Vermillion County.
