A 28-year-old man has been identified as the victim who found dead in a Marshall Street apartment in the City of Poughkeepsie,  bound and beaten, according to the City of Poughkeepsie Police.

Frederick “Joey” Veitch III, of Shandaken, in Ulster County, was found dead Monday after police responded to the first-floor apartment for a report of a person being beaten, said Det. Lt. Matt Clark.

Veitch's cause of death is still being investigated by the Dutchess County Medical Examiner’s Office, Clark added.

The murdered man was found around 1:11 a.m. when responding City of Poughkeepsie police officers found Veitch bound and dead at 48 Marshall St., said Clark.

When officers arrived they nabbed a man leaving the apartment identified as David Perry, 49, of the City of Poughkeepsie, as another man fled out the window, he added.

Perry told officers that the two men had tied up the man and attempted to rob him, but that during a struggle, the man died, Clark said.

The second man, 19-year-old Daniel Barletta, of the City of Poughkeepsie, was arrested in New York City.

Both men were charged with second-degree murder and are being held without bail at the Dutchess County Jail.
