A 30-year-old man was beaten to death with a baseball bat, police said. The murder happened around 4:00 Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators said the man, Christopher Lulenski, lived with his girlfriend in a basement apartment on Bonnie Road in Centereach.

The girlfriend's estranged husband showed up at the house and broke a glass door to get inside.

"He had a confrontation with her new boyfriend. That confrontation spilled out into the street. The new boyfriend was beaten to death with a baseball bat," Lt. Det. Jack Fitzpatrick said.

Police said they are looking for 30-year-old Keith Amato in connection with this case.

Amato was last seen in a late-model black Nissan Altima.
