CHALK BLUFF, TX (KXXV) -

UPDATE: A second arrest has been made in the brutal murder of an elderly chalk bluff man who was beaten to death in his own bed.

Investigators identified the victim as 75-year-old Albert Kilgo. Family members found Kilgo's dead body inside of his home early Saturday morning.  Deputies say Kilgo was beaten to death and left for dead in his own home on the 200 block of River Ridge Street. They say his body had been in his house for at least three or four days.

The victim's family had reported Kilgo missing Friday night after they hadn't been able to get in contact with him for days. Deputies found Kilgo's car in a separate location which turned out to be where of the suspects were staying.  

Deputies arrested 58 year-old Jimmie Smith Jr. early Tuesday morning. Authorities say smith has a long criminal wrap-sheet from the Dallas and East Texas areas. Smith is now is now behind bars and is being held on $1 million dollars bond.

Authorities arrested 44 year-old Roy Lee Boykin Saturday night for his involvement in the murder of 75 year-old Albert Doyle Kilgo. Boykin's arrest affidavit shows he named Smith as his accomplice during questioning.

Boykin claims he and Smith went to Kilgo's together. Kilgo had let Boykin stay with him, but kicked him out last week and changed his locks.  

In the arrest affidavit Boykin says Smith is the one that beat Kilgo to death but admits they both robbed him. Boykin also states that it was Smith who stole Kilgo's car that night. Deputies later found the car, stolen goods and other evidence in Smith's room at Days Inn Motel in Bellmead.
