PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -

A man accused of beating a Rhode Island junk-car dealer with a two-by-four over a deal gone wrong has been charged with his murder.

Daniel Lastarza, 48, was ordered held without bail Tuesday. He is accused of killing I Buy Junk Cars owner Jonathan Stack, of Glocester.

It isn't clear whether the 48-year-old Lastarza has a lawyer.

The 34-year-old Stack was badly beaten last week in the parking lot of a bar in Providence's Federal Hill. Police say he was trying to get back $400 he had paid for a truck that turned out not to belong to the seller.

Police say Stack and someone with him were attacked. Stack was knocked to the ground with the two-by-four. He died Friday.
