DES MOINES (AP) — A trial date has been set for four men charged with first-degree murder in the beating death of a Des Moines man.
According to online court records, a trial is scheduled Dec. 9 for Le'Prese Derrion Williams, 21; James Alon Shorter, 19; Yarvon Nathaniel Russell, 18; and Kent Anthony Tyler, 18.
The men are accused of attacking Richard Daughenbaugh, 40, who was found severely beaten in a parking lot near the Center Street Bridge. He later died at a hospital.
A warrant says the men beat Daughenbaugh after he honked his horn at the group.
