A 61-year-old man is dead because his 71-year-old fellow nursing home resident allegedly beat him to death during a fight about using the washing machine.

Police in Joliet, Illinois, said in a press release they were called around 9:30 p.m. Thursday to Salem Village Nursing and Rehabilitation for a report of an assault on the sixth floor. When they arrived they found the unresponsive victim in a laundry room.

Staff called 911 and rendered medical aid. The victim, who has not yet been publicly identified, was pronounced dead.
