Arrest made in beating death of Milwaukee 15-year-old

An arrest has been made in the death of 15-year-old Dennis King.

The suspect is facing 1st-degree intentional homicide charges. King was reported missing on May 11. His body was found in a home Sunday, May 20. 

Monday evening, friends and family released balloons into the air and honored Dennis at a vigil just steps away from where his body was found.

Pastor Malcolm Hunt comforts families of violence. He talked with King's mother.

"We are losing our babies, losing our children and losing our young people to all this evil that is going on within our community," said Hunt. 

Police haven't released details in the death but family members have said that the teen was beaten to death over a video game.

"From my understanding, it was something about a  game or something that this young man was beat to death over. That just shows you that we are living in the last days," Hunt said. 

Charges could be filed as early as Tuesday in the case. Those documents will detail what police believe happened. TODAY'S TMJ4 will release the name of the suspect when he is officially charged.
