When grief and pain strike a person, they can react in very unusual ways. Sometimes these acts are criminal. One of the classic phases that a person will enter is anger over what happened. That’s what may have happened in a case in Charlotte earlier this week that has one man fighting for his life in a coma.
Two room-mates were living together near Harrisburg. One of the room-mate had died earlier that day in an overdose. That man’s brother is now accused of beating the other room-mate with a 2×4 it what may have been revenge for that according to prosecutors.
The victim’s mother said that her son didn’t resist the attack, and was surprised that authorities let the suspect go without posting bail. Currently he is charged with felony assault, but that may get upgraded to murder if his alleged victim dies.
When senseless violence happens like this, there are always more repercussions than just the physical beating and recovery. Medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial hardships can result. Even permanent disability can happen. That’s why it’s important to consult with a lawyer if you or a family member has been injured in a violent act.
