A Missouri man has been accused of murdering his neighbor with a baseball in a savage beating that finished with him exclaiming, “that felt good,” according to authorities.

Isaac Heath, 31, from Berkeley, was arrested on Thursday on charges of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the killing of Eileen Schnitker.

A St. Louis County prosecutor said that on Wednesday morning, some type of a disturbance occurred outside Schnitker’s home on Kathlyn Drive, and the retired nurse went outside to see what was happening, reported the station KSDK.

That is when Heath, Schnitker’s neighbor, allegedly attacked her.

The Berkley Police Department said Heath was observed standing on the victim’s porch and striking something with a bat he was swinging.

A witness told cops they overheard the suspect say, “that felt good,” after he stopped deploying the cudgel.

Eileen Schnitker, a retired nurse, died on her porch after suffering injuries to her head and stab wounds to her stomach.

Schnitker was found dead with injuries to her face and head. She also suffered stab wounds to her stomach.

“The fact patterns of some crimes leave you speechless, and this is one of those,” said St. Louis Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell. “We’re not talking about a shoot-out. This is a neighbor checking on her home and she was savagely beaten.”

The woman’s family members told the news outlet that Schnitker, who lived at the house in Berkeley with her two dogs, was looking forward to traveling to Florida for a wedding.

“My aunt Eileen was the most down-to-earth, real person I ever knew,” said Schnitker’s nephew Randall Benson.

Heath remained at the county jail Friday on $750,000 bond.
