LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Two men are facing charges of open murder in the beating death Friday night of a man outside a Henderson business, police said.

Floyd Epps, 69, and Stephon Epps, 32, are being held at the Henderson Detention Center after being arrested on the charges Saturday.

According to the Henderson Police Department, a man was beaten twice, each time by three men, near the 1400 block of North Boulder Highway on Friday, once at about 10:20 p.m.. and then again about an hour later.

After the first beating, the man, 62, had minor injuries, and police made a report.

When police went back an hour later, responding to a report of the same man being beaten, they said they found him bloodied, lying near a door outside the same business. The man was taken to an area hospital where he died, police said.

Henderson detectives were able to identify two of the men suspected of beating the victim, Floyd Epps and Stephon Epps, and arrested them. Each is charged with one count of open murder.

The charge means a conviction can be returned on any of the state’s classifications of murder, ranging from first degree to manslaughter.

Police did not say if the Eppses are related or provide any information on the third man in the beatings. Neither did they say if the same three men beat the victim each time.

Police said the investigation is continuing and that no further details would be released.
