(FORT WAYNE) - A Fort Wayne man has been arrested on charges alleging that he pummeled another man to death after knocking him unconscious.

Twenty-eight-year-old Steven L. Lemler was arrested Friday on a preliminary involuntary manslaughter charge. He's being held at the Allen County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Court documents say Lemler attacked and knocked out 42-year-old Kirk D. Lecount on July 17 because he believed Lecount had insulted a woman drinking with them and others in a backyard.

The Journal Gazette reports witnesses told police that after another person placed the unconscious man in a recliner chair Lemler punched Lecount in the face up to three more times and hit him in the head with a cooler.

An autopsy found that Lecount died from blunt-force injuries to the head.
