Police: Missing man was put in dog cage after fatal beating

Authorities say a North Carolina man missing for months was fatally beaten and stuffed into a metal dog cage.
The Fayetteville Observer reports 23-year-old Ryan Dewain Chavis was charged Thursday with murder, kidnapping and conspiracy in the death of Charles Anthony Fuentes.
Fuentes was last seen leaving a sports bar with Chavis and 42-year-old Mark Allen Verhasselt in March. According to a detective’s statement, a witness said Fuentes was beaten to death after a disagreement with the pair. The witness saw Fuentes’ body inside a dog cage shortly after he was killed.
Verhasselt left town and was shot to death in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, in July. Two Fayetteville men are charged in his death, but police believe it’s unrelated to Fuentes’ disappearance.
It’s unclear whether Chavis has a lawyer.
