HEPHZIBAH, GA (WFXG) -

A Richmond County judge denied bond Friday for a 21-year-old man accused of beating his roommate to death and leaving his body in a field

Altaye Levelle Knight is accused of killing 27-year-old Damon Terrell Prymus, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office. Deputies said both men lived at 1810 North Barton Drive.

Prymus' body was found shortly before 6 p.m. May 22 in a field off Williams Drive, according to the sheriff's office. 

Prosecutors said Friday that Knight beat Prymus to death with a baseball bat. They also said Knight kept the body in the house for a few days before dismembering it and leaving it in the field. 

But defense attorneys for Prymus said that he was acting in self defense. They claim Prymus was beating Knight and that Knight took the bat and hit back to defend himself.

Knight is being held at the Richmond County jail.
