Man Arrested In Beating Death

Police: Men Involved In Fight

A man was arrested Monday in the beating death of a man over the weekend.

Shaun Fields, 20, of Indianapolis, was taken into custody in Beech Grove a day after the body of Javon Lilly, 35, was found behind a Dumpster in the 3200 block of East 10th Street, Indianapolis police said.

"It appeared that Mr. Lilly had sustained head injuries and was dragged to this location," said Anthony Schneider, Indianapolis police spokesman. "An autopsy showed that Mr. Lilly had died as a result of being beaten."

Police said they think Fields and Lilly were involved in a fight before Lilly's death.

Fields was being held Tuesday in the Marion County Jail.
