Fund established for Marigny bottle beating victim

Updated:

New Orleans, La.- The family of a man critically injured in a beating in the Marigny on March10th establishes a fund to help with his mounting medical expenses.

The beating victim spent more than ten days in the hospital, much of it in intensive care. He may also require cosmetic surgery to repair damage.

His father tells FOX 8 that the victim does not have health insurance. The family has established the "Marigny bottle attack victim" fund at Regions bank.

Orleans parish prosecutors now have the option to try the two juvenile suspects in that attack as adults.

Wednesday, a judge approved the transfer of the case from Juvenile court.

New Orleans Police initially booked the two juveniles with one count each of simple robbery and aggravated battery.

Since neither of these charges can be transferred to adult court, The D.A.'s office asked the juvenile judge to find probable cause for attempted simple robbery and attempted second degree murder.

The judge's ruling gives the D.A.'s office 30 days to make a decision on which court will hear the case.

New Orleans Police are still developing information about a third suspect seen in the surveillance video of the beating.
