A 44-year-old man has been charged in the beating death of another man in Olathe last month.

Brian Dale Pittman of Olathe faces a charge of voluntary manslaughter in Johnson County District Court in the death of Arthur Wilson Cattlett Jr., 56.

On Sept. 29, Olathe police found Cattlett unresponsive in the 16600 block of West 139th Street.

Prosecutors said in court documents that Cattlett was beaten, kicked and stomped. The killing allegedly occurred “upon a sudden quarrel or in the heat of passion,” according to charging documents.

Pittman was arrested Tuesday and his bond was set at $1 million, according to court records.
