Baltimore police have charged a 35-year-old Pikesville man in the fatal beating of an 84-year-old man found dead behind a city gas station.

Members of the Regional Warrant Apprehension Task Force arrested Hector Jose Posado at his home Tuesday and he was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Lucio Solarzano.

Posado was being held without bail at Central Booking and Intake Center. Police say Solarzano's body was found Sunday evening behind a Texaco service station in the 7000 block of Reisterstown Road. He was pronounced dead at the scene and police say his body bore signs of head injuries. Detectives are trying to determine a motive for the slaying.
