Murder Charges Sought in Coma Death

Two East Texas brothers are facing murder charges after the death of a man they had beaten and left in a coma for over four months. 17 year old Demarko Dennis and 25 year old Mongo Williams were arrested by Kilgore police in September, after they attacked a 43 year old man outside an area business.

The victim was beaten with a baseball bat and he was left comatose from the incident. Dennis and Williams were originally charged with aggravated assault... But because the victim died this past week, prosecutors will now seek first degree murder charges.

 Both posted $50,000 bond in December, and trial dates are pending on the original charges.
