BLOOMINGTON, Illinois — Three Bloomington teenagers are accused of killing a homeless man who died last week after a June beating.

According to The Pantagraph (http://bit.ly/1jnbcDZ ), charges have not yet been filed against the three in the July 3 death of 56-year-old Ronald D. Smith. But State's Attorney Jason Chambers said Tuesday that he expected to file charges within a couple of days.

Two of the accused are 18 and the third is 19. All three are in jail.

Police say Smith was found injured following a beating in a local park on June 2.

Authorities say Smith died at a hospital of what an autopsy found was bacterial peritonitis resulting from an abdominal wound from the beating.

Smith's family said he was homeless and had been unemployed for two decades.
