GILBERT, Ariz. — A man is accused of fatally beating an Arizona veteran earlier this month, authorities said.
According to court documents, one of Samia’s friends called Gilbert police to report that Samia had attempted to break into a smoke shop after a night of drinking, KNXV reported.
Officers responded and found a trail of blood, which led them to a home where they found Bernal severely injured, the television station reported.
“Totally senseless,” Bernal’s neighbor, Jim Corrigan, told KNXV. “There’s no rhyme or reason to it.”
