DEVELOPING: 16-Year-Old Beats Friend to Death with Baseball Bat Over a Girl

A Lake Wales, Florida, sheriff says a 16-year-old boy was apparently jealous that his friend was in a relationship with a girl he liked, invited the boy to smoke marijuana in the woods before beating him to death with a baseball bat.

The teen beat 15-year-old Giovanni Diaz in the face and head Monday afternoon. The teen then ran into a witness to the beating and asking what he should do. The witness told him to call 911, which he did.

The teen told deputies he hit the boy in self-defense before finally confessing to the crime. He has three previous battery charges, two of which were on Diaz.

He faces charges of first-degree murder and marijuana possession. It was not clear if he had a lawyer.
