BOONEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say three suspects have been arrested for the beating death of a man in Booneville who witnesses say was pulled from his car and attacked.

Logan County sheriff’s officials and Booneville police say the three are being held in connection with the death of 41-year-old Gregory Kennedy of Booneville.

Investigators told reporters that witnesses saw Kennedy pulled from his car Tuesday afternoon and beaten. The witnesses say Kennedy managed to escape at one point, but was chased down and beaten for several more minutes.

He later died at a Booneville hospital.

Investigators say Kennedy was believed to have had a role in the beating of the pregnant girlfriend of one of the suspects.
