      AUSTIN, Texas-- A San Antonio man has been arrested for allegedly bludgeoning another man to death with a sledgehammer at a New Year Eve party.

      Investigators searching under a tarp in the yard recovered the body of a 28-year-old man outside a home on Wyoming Street on the city's east side.

      The victim and suspect were not immediately identified.

      Neighbors told several San Antonio media outlets that a party at the home had begun Tuesday night and lasted into Wednesday morning.

      The incident marks San Antonio's first homicide of 2014.
