LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) -- A 51-year-old southwest Kansas man is dead after being severely beaten in a rural Seward County home over the weekend.

The High Plains Daily Leader (http://bit.ly/1eXOHgx) reports Seward County deputies were called at 8:30 p.m. Saturday in the northwest part of the county on a report of an unresponsive man. They found Thomas Miller of Garden City, who was flown to a Wichita hospital where he died early Sunday morning.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is helping the sheriff's office investigate the death, which is considered a homicide.

Seward County Undersheriff Gene Ward says nobody has been arrested but people were being interviewed.

An autopsy was performed Monday morning.
