A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in the murder of a homeless man whose body was found at an encampment in downtown Reno, Nevada.

An autopsy determined that Eric Burkart, 55, suffered violent, traumatic injuries before he died.

The teen was taken into custody on a charge of murder. A police spokesman said the boy is being charged as an adult.

The teen's name has not been released, and he is being held without bail at the Washoe County Sheriff's Office.
