KALAMAZOO (WKZO)  --  Drew Thorngate of Kalamazoo has been bound over to stand trial for the baseball bat beating death of man he met thru Craig’s List.

Police claim that Francisco Veloz-Padilla had missed appointments to give Thorngate a massage twice. Police say when Thorngate confronted the victim at his home on Rose Street, they argued and Veloz-Padilla was left badly beaten in a dumpster.

Police say Thorngate returned to the scene with bleach to try to clean up.

The Victim spent three weeks in the hospital in critical condition before dying.

TV-3 reports that at his preliminary hearing yesterday a police officer and a friend both testified that Thorngate confessed to the crime.
