COLUMBUS, Ohio - Authorities say the Ohio man who was badly beat by six teens almost a year ago in a Cincinnati suburb has died.
The Hamilton County prosecutor's office spokeswoman Julie Wilson says 46-year-old Pat Mahaney died Friday at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
The six teens, all 13 and 14, injured Mahaney in August and told police they did it because they were bored and looking for something to do.
Wilson says Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters has asked the coroner for an autopsy.
Three of the youths have pleaded guilty to felonious assault.
Wilson would not elaborate on whether the office will seek additional charges against the teens. She says the office will explain its "next steps if any" after the coroner issues a report.
