Iowa man, kills mother's boyfriend with battle ax:


An Iowa man went medieval on his mother's boyfriend and clobbered him to death with a double-bladed battle ax, police said Monday.

The vicious murder took place Sunday night at the Oskaloosa home of 25-year-old Bradley Arterburn, who lives in the house with his mother, Linda, police said.

Arterburn allegedly attacked 58-year-old Robert Horovitz with an ax, which was part of a large collection of medieval-style weapons found in the home, authorities told the Quad-City Times.

The young man struck Horovitz several times with the battle ax before stabbing him with its sharp tips, police said.

"We believe the initial injury was the back injury. And he never [saw] it coming," Oskaloosa Police Chief Jake McGee told WHO 13 News. "And then started hitting him with the ax. He had back, shoulder, neck, head injuries. Arm injuries."
