Huntsville Police charged 48-year-old Gerry Dean Young with murder on Friday.
Police say Young assaulted 53-year-old Anthony Samuel with an unknown weapon in early September. Investigators say both men were in a relationship with the same woman.
Samuel was found in the backyard of a home on Frederick Avenue on September 4th. He was transported from Huntsville Hospital to the VA Hospital in Birmingham, because he had severe head trauma. Samuel passed away around 2 weeks later.
Young is currently in the Madison County Jail on a $60,000 bond.
