A Bend man suspected of the baseball bat beating death could be arraigned today. Richard Ward Clarke, 25, has been in custody at the Deschutes County Jail since October 18th on a parole violation charge. Police have suspected Clarke in the baseball bat beating death of Matthew T. Fitzhenry, 36, who was his roommate. Fitzhenry was found badly beaten in the home on northwest Georgia Avenue on October 17th. He later died from his injuries.  Although Clarke did make a brief appearance via video link, from the Jail on Friday, Judge Edward Perkins says a Grand Jury has been convened to consider the case and that Clarke could be arraigned today if the jury decides to indict him in Fitzhenry's death.
