Two men are behind bars after a man was found beaten to death in northeast Sioux Falls.
Police were called to the 1100 block of North Cliff Avenue Thursday around 6:45 p.m. and searched a wooded area near East 1st Street and Blauvelt Avenue for several hours. They later found the body of a homeless man in an area neighbors say was being used as a homeless camp. It appeared he had been beaten.
A search for people with information in the beating led police to make two arrests. Forty-three-year-old Eugene Martin is charged with first degree murder. Fifty-two-year-old Clint Cottonwood is charged with simple assault. Police say both men were transients.
The victim's name has not been released.
