FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Charges against a Fort Wayne man were upgraded Wednesday morning in last week's homicide.

22-year-old Anthony Tate is now charged with murder in the death of 20-year-old William Fett who died on Monday.

Police arrested Tate and a teenager in an apartment in the 5700 block of Ullyot Drive June second, after they found Fett unconscious on the floor.

Around three Thursday morning, Fort Wayne Police went to the scene after neighbors complained of thumping noises coming from that unit.

When officers didn't get an answer after knocking on the door, they looked in a window and saw Fett lying unconscious on the floor.

They forced their way in, and paramedics rushed the man to the hospital.

Officers found a teen boy and Tate inside the apartment at the time of the incident.

Fett died from blunt force trauma to the head the next day.
