    A San Antonio man has been arrested for allegedly bludgeoning another man to death with a sledgehammer at a New Year's Eve party.

    Investigators searching under a tarp in the yard recovered the body of a 28-year-old man outside a home on Wyoming Street on the city's east side.

    The victim and suspect were not immediately identified.

    Neighbors told several San Antonio media outlets that a party at the home had begun Tuesday night and lasted into Wednesday morning.

    The victim and suspect are believed to have become involved in an altercation around 9 a.m.

    The incident marks San Antonio's first homicide of 2014.
