A retired teacher from Michigan City last week died from a beating.

An autopsy yesterday found that Gerald Peters died from blunt force


The 69 year old Peters was found dead inside his home a few blocks off

Michigan Boulevard.

His car and other items were taken and four suspects were soon taken into


Authorities are not saying what was used to deliver the blows....due to the

ongoing investigation.

Three of the suspects are teenagers.

They are being charged as adults....meaning they could receive 20 years or more

of prison time.

La Porte County Prosecutor Bob Szilagyi says murder is a charge that can mean prosecution

of a child as an adult...

Even though the police are not saying what was used in the beating....sources

say the weapon was a baseball bat.
