Hearing To Decide If Four Face Trial In Mob Attack

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - Four males ages 17 to 30 are returning to court for a hearing on whether they should stand trial for the severe beating of a suburban man who accidentally struck a 10-year-old with his pickup truck on Detroit's east side.

Fifty-four-year-old Steve Utash spent days in a coma and remains hospitalized after the April 2 beating. The boy is recovering.

A hearing scheduled Monday is to decide whether the four face trial for assault with intent to murder.

They are 17-year-old Bruce Wimbush Jr., 19-year-old Latrez Cummings, 24-year-old James Davis and 30-year-old Wonzey Saffold.

A juvenile trial is June 23 for a 16-year-old on charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and ethnic intimidation. His lawyer denies racial motivation by the black youth against the white man.
