Des Moines police say in a news release that 39-year-old Nicky Joe Beery, of Des Moines, was charged in a warrant Saturday with first-degree murder in the death of 43-year-old James Moss Jr.

Moss found injured at a home early the morning of Oct. 5 and was pronounced dead later at a hospital. Police have not said what caused his death.
