David Walker flew into town from Chicago early yesterday morning, and was in Phoenix for about an hour before he beat his ex-wife's boyfriend to death with a baseball bat, according to police.

Phoenix police say Walker, 29, got in around 12:30 a.m., and went straight to his ex-wife's house, near 39th Avenue and Bell Road.

Walker's accused of going in through the back door of his ex-wife's house, grabbing a baseball bat from the garage, then heading up to his ex-wife's bedroom.

Once he entered the bedroom -- where his ex-wife and her boyfriend, Adam Moring, were sleeping -- Walker hit Moring several times in the head with bat, police say.

Walker also hit his ex-wife with the bat, according to the cops, before Walker forced his wife to gather up their two kids and drive the four of them to Tempe.

It's not really clear why Walker wanted to go to Tempe, but once his wife drove him there, he jumped out of the car, and threw the bat as he ran away.

His ex-wife called the cops once she found a phone, and although Phoenix Fire Department personnel got Moring to a hospital, he died a few hours later.

Phoenix police ended up tracking down Walker last night, as he was staying in a motel room in Tempe. A Phoenix police spokesman says Walker refused to speak to investigators.

Walker's facing quite a few charges, including first-degree murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping, burglary, tempering with evidence, and a couple marijuana-related charges.

A man enters his bedroom in his own home. (lease/2 yr, and all utilities, all in his name). He had been in Illinois trying to pay off outstanding Arizona debts. In the dark bedroom, he undresses for bed, and finds what appears to be an intruder IN HIS BED, a potential threat to his children sleeping across the hall!! NOW, you have truthful facts. How do YOU react, same facts, to protect YOUR family? The newspapers did not check their FACTS before they printed a story that would sell more newspapers! NOW, who's wrong, and who "was played"??

This guy would be good candidate for Babeu's idiot militia.  The NRA is a terrorist organization.

Paul Penzone beat his wife and he admitted to it. Penzone deserves to be beat too.

No ex-wife is worth killing and life in prison.  What a loser.  I bet he has a minuscule dick and he was pissed about it.  That is really the only logical explanation I can come up with for this insanity.

 @maxonepercent And do you think that the size of his "dick" has to do with the fact that he wielded a baseball bat? Well, yeah, interesting metaphor.

 @tiemannc  So you are saying it is okay to murder people if your wife divorces you?  I think you might want to consider moving to Saudi Arabia or some place fun like that, I think you will feel more at home there
