Man ordered held in Federal Hill beating death

Daniel Lastarza is charged with murder in the beating death of Jonathan Stack.

A man accused of beating to death another man on Federal Hill has been charged with his murder.

Daniel Lastarza, 48, was ordered held without bail Tuesday morning in the killing of 34-year-old Jonathan Stack.

Lastarza is accused of beating Stack with a two-by-four in the parking lot of The $3 Bar.

The fight apparently started over a $400 junk-car deal.

Lastarza is also charged with assaulting another man in the same attack that claimed Stack's life.

On Monday night, Federal Hill business owners and city officials met to discuss what can be done to stop the night time violence in the city.
